Former Harvard rower and Olympic gold medalist Malcolm Howard ’05 earned honorable mention Rowing News Male Athlete of the Year.

Malcolm earned a gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics as a part of the Canadian eight. The following year he helped the Canadian eight, a crew that was not expected to be good in 2009, to a silver medal at the world championships.

In the January edition of Rowing News, Ed Winchester wrote, “Howard’s career has long been marked by success, from his days as a standout junior at Brentwood College to his role in the engine room of the national champion Harvard varsity eight. But it’s as a member of Canada’s senior team that Howard has truly come into his own.”
