Public Invited to Watch Hendershot Compete in 2012 Olympics Women's Pair Final

Simsbury native Sara Hendershot will compete in the Women's Pair rowing final at 6:50 a.m.

Join the Simsbury High School Crew Team and town officials for a public viewing of Simsbury's own Sara Hendershot as she competes for an olympic medal Wednesday morning.

Residents are invited to watch the race live in the amphitheater at 6:50 a.m. Wednesday morning. Doors will open between 6:10 and 6:20 a.m. and participants are asked to park in the east parking lot of the school.

Hendershot and her rowing parner, Sarah Zelenka took a close second place finish in their heat on Saturday topped only by Great Britain to the surprise of Olympic officials.

The pair will be competing in Wednesday's final event against British pair Helen Glover and Heather Stanning, Juliette Haigh and Rebecca Scown of Australia, Kate Hornsey and Sarah Tait of New Zealand, Kerstin Hartmann and Marlene Senig of Germany, and Georgeta Andrunache and Viorica Susanu of Romania.

Hi Jill, If you have Comcast, you can watch it live online at http://www.nbcolympics.com. You just have to plug in your cable provider and you get a "pass" to watch the live coverage.
