  • PISCATAWAY, NJ -- Maite Urtasun (’01) won a gold medal in the Women’s 8-oared crew at the World Championships held last week in Seville, Spain. Maite rowed in the 4-seat for the United States.

    The U.S. women led the Grand Final from start to finish, but had to hold off a strong challenge from both Australia and Germany to win the gold for the first time since 1995. The boat clocked a 6:04.25, less than a second ahead of Australia (6:05.10) and Germany (6:05.19). Romania, Belarus, and Canada rounded out the Grand Final.

    Maite was a 2 year MVP for the Rutgers women’s team. She led Rutgers to the NCAA Regatta in both ’97 and ’01, and was named an All-American in 2001. Maite also has a Bronze medal from 1999 World Championships for her performance in the U.S. Women’s 4-oared crew.

    She received the Sonny Werblin Award for achieving national recognition in 2001.
