Stanford's Elle Logan To Be Among 150 U.S. Olympians Featured On The Oprah Winfrey Show
Sept. 2, 2008
STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford rower Elle Logan `10, part of the gold medal-winning U.S. Women's Eight at the 2008 Olympics, will be among 150 U.S. Olympians honored at 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' season premiere on Sept. 8.
The appearance on 'Oprah' continues a post-Olympic whirlwind of recognition for Logan after helping the U.S. eight to its first gold medal since the 1984 Los Angeles Games. Logan's tour began Sunday in her hometown of Boothbay Harbor, Maine, which declared the day to be 'Elle Logan Day' in the Olympic Gold Medalist's honor.
Arriving in Boothbay Harbor by boat, Logan rode in a parade to the Boothbay Region YMCA, where she received the 'Oar' to the City and was praised by Maine Senator Susan Collins.
Monday night, Logan arrived at Fenway Park, the home of Major League Baseball's Boston Red Sox. There, Logan was among the 'New England 19,' the nickname given to a group of Olymians from the New England region, honored prior to that evening's Red Sox-Orioles contest. Logan was the only gold medalist present among the 19 Olympians at the ceremony.
Logan's appearance on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' will air Sept. 8.
