Duxbury’s own William Miller and his teammates on the US Olympic Men’s Eight Rowing team won their first race this past weekend, beating out three teams in their heat to secure a spot in the final medal race. With a time of 5:30:72 the men’s team beat out Australia in close second followed by Poland and the Ukraine.

Miller was located in the fourth seat of the skull and helped his team qualify for the Olympics in May in Lucerne, Switzerland. The team has to beat out six other countries in the final race to win gold.

Miller’s parents, Bill and Sally Miller, joined him in London last week to cheer on his team. His father was also an Olympic athlete competing in the 1972 Munich Olympics.

The men’s eight team will race in the final on Wednesday, Aug. 1 at 12:30 p.m. (EST). The race may be watched on nbcolympics.com and results may be viewed on Will Miller’s official NBC Olympic page: nbcolympics.com/athletes/athlete=will-miller/index.html.

Duxbury couldn’t be prouder. Go, Will!
