Meghan O’Leary is a 2016 Olympian and five-time National Team member with the United States Rowing Team. She has just finished competing at the 2017 World Rowing Championships in Sarasota, Florida where she won a silver medal in the W2x. Congratulations Meghan O' Leary and Ellen Tomek! 
 
A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, she was a two-sport student athlete (Volleyball, Softball) and Jefferson Scholar at the University of Virginia. After obtaining both her Bachelor’s (CLAS ’07) and Master’s (M.Ed ’08) from UVA, she joined ESPN as a Production Assistant, working primarily on college sports and the ESPNU network. After a year, she transitioned into the Programming and Acquisitions Department, continuing her work in the college sports division.
 
In 2010, Meghan’s career took a dramatic turn after picking up rowing for the first time and falling in love with the sport. After just one year of rowing, she was invited to join the USRowing National Training Center in Princeton, New Jersey. During her time with the National Team, Meghan continued to work part-time with ESPN through the spring of 2013, until deciding to pursue her Olympic rowing career full-time.
 
Meghan is a three-time World Cup medalist, four-time National Selection Regatta Champion, and has competed in four world championships. She most recently represented Team USA at the Rio 2016 Summer Olympic Games, placing sixth with her partner, Ellen Tomek.
