Eight Cornell Alumni To Participate In The Olympics
A total of eight Olympians is the most ever for Cornell University at the Winter Games and the most in any Olympic games in more than a century--tied with the eight representatives at the 1912 Olympic Summer Games in Stockholm, Sweden.
Among Cornell University's Ivy League peers, only Dartmouth is sending more alumni athletes to the Pyeongchang Olympics games.
The majority of Cornell's contingent will skate for Team Canada's Women's Hockey team, with Johnston, Fortino, Rougeau, and Jenner looking to defend their Gold Medals, along with the addition of Olympic rookie Saulnier.
In men's hockey, Scrivens will also don the Maple Leaf and make his Olympic debut for the reigning gold medal winners.
Looking to join Greubel, Poser, and Parke in that rare company will be Kirkpatrick, who makes his Olympic debut for Canada in the four-man bobsled.
Women's ice hockey runs Feb. 10-22
The Pyeongchang Olympics Men's ice hockey begins Feb. 14 and concludes with the medal round on Feb. 25.
Bobsled will be contested from Feb.18-25.
