Athletics plans an Olympic send-off for Lancer alum

The athletics department invites the campus and the broader community to extend best wishes to Lancer alumna Melissa Bishop as she sets off to compete for Canada in the London Olympics.

A public reception starts at 11:45 a.m. on Friday, July 20, in the multi-purpose room, St. Denis Centre. Bishop will leave for Europe the next day in preparation for her competition in the 800m event.

Fellow grad Andrea Steen (BHK 1979, honorary LLD 2002), a hurdler at the 1984 Los Angeles Summer Games, is scheduled to speak at Friday’s reception.
