Silver stars: View magazine traces UWindsor Olympic connection

The London Olympics are just around the corner. Did you know that UWindsor alumni were part of the only Canadian basketball team to ever win a medal at the Games? Or that Lancer track athlete Melissa Bishop (BHK 2010, B.Ed 2011) will compete for Team Canada in London?

Read about them in “Silver Stars,” the cover story in the summer edition of View magazine, published by the Office of Public Affairs and Communications.

This edition also profiles:

  • researcher Scott Martyn who studies the marketing of the Games;
  • inspirational alumnus Wes Harding (B.Ed 2011), who competed in his first-ever Boston Marathon this year at the age of 45; and
  • Bre-Anne Fifield, an amazing UWindsor student researcher who hopes her work in the lab may help lead to a drug to fight against breast cancer.
