  While former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee’s presidential campaign didn’t pan out, his daughter’s Olympic campaign is a different story.

Earlier this month, Louisa Chafee earned her spot on the 2016 Olympic Sailing Team. Chafee began sailing as a child, and went onto become a three-time All-American at Brown University.

Rhode Island Public Radio’s Emily Wooldridge caught up with Louisa about her personal journey, and preparations for the Games this summer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

  Thank goodness for a new week. Could last week have been any worse for Boston sports?

You might think a health care reporter wouldn’t have much interest in covering the Olympics. Think again! (Personally, I can’t wait for the opening ceremonies tonight.)
