Panther graduates compete as Summer Olympic Games wrap up

RIO DE JANEIRO — Two Middlebury College graduates competed in the Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympic Games on this past Saturday.
Lea Davison, a 33-year-old 2005 graduate, finished seventh out of 29 competitors in cross-country mountain biking. She had been considered a potential medal contender, but settled for improving on her 11th-place finish in the 2012 London Games.
Sarah Groff True, 34-year-old 2004 Middlebury graduate from Hanover, N.H., was also considered a threat in Saturday’s women’s triathlon after finishing fourth in the 2012 Games and finishing 2015 as the world’s third-ranked female triathlete. Unfortunately, she was involved in a crash in the bicycle portion of the race and was unable to continue.
