Olympics 2012: Megan Kalmoe, Team USA Earn Bronze In Women's Quadruple Sculls

On Wednesday, the United States added another medal to the nation's overall medal count thus far at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, when the United States women's rowing team earned bronze in the Women's Quadruple Sculls.

Minnesota native, Megan Kalmoe was part of the four woman team, which included Adrienne Martelli, Kara Kohler and Natalie Dell.

The bronze medal performance in the women's quad was the United States' first medal in rowing in the 2012 games and it's second ever in the event (the first time came in 1984, when the USA earned a silver medal).

"It was a great race," said Dell. "We just kind of went on trust every stroke, because this is our first regatta together. I don't know what Adrienne was doing (at stroke), but it was great. We kind of died in the last five hundred meters. I feel like we had nothing left."
