Olympic gold medalist Madison Mailey: “I’m living the athlete’s dream”

Madison Mailey, DMSB‘18, didn’t try rowing until her junior year of high school. “I was a dancer for 10 years,” she said. “It gave me a pretty good background of working hard.”

What she didn’t know at the time was that not really “fitting in” with the dance world – “I was so tall,” she said – gave her the opportunity to fall in love with rowing, and eventually become an Olympic gold medalist.
