July 8, 2008

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Jamie Redman '08, who helped Yale's varsity eight to a pair of NCAA championships, will represent the United States at the 2008 FISA World Rowing Under 23 Championships scheduled for July 17-20 in Brandenburg, Germany. Redman will row in the women's eight and is one of three returning members of the boat that won a bronze medal at last year's world championship in Scotland.

As a senior at Yale this spring, Redman sat in the No. 5 seat in the Yale varsity eight that won the Grand Final at the NCAA Championships by less than a second. She also was in the No. 5 seat as a junior, helping the Bulldogs to an undefeated season that included victories at the Eastern Sprints and NCAA Championship.

Redman, who majored in history of science/history of medicine, was a three-time Collegiate Rowing Coaches Association Scholar Athlete. She was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District I at-large first team and earned Academic All-Ivy recognition in her senior year. In addition, she earned an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.

Before rowing, Redman was an elite-level Nordic ski racer and competed in the 2001 and 2002 Junior Olympic Games. She also ran the New York City Marathon.
