Canadian oarsman Malcolm Howard ’05, who rowed at Harvard and won a gold medal in his country’s eight-oared boat at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, added a silver to his collection at the London Games. The gold went to the powerhouse German eight, which had not suffered defeat since 2009. Germany finished the final in 5:48.75, edging out the Canadians, whose time was 5:49.98, by just over a second. The Harvard Crimson covered Howard’s medal-winning race along with the gold-medal triumph of the U.S women’s eight. The latter victory, by a crew that included two Radcliffe rowers, was the second consecutive win in this event by the U.S. women, who also prevailed at Beijing in 2008.
