Olympic silver medal for McMaster nursing alumnus

Doug Csima, who earned his Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) degree in 2007, was one of two McMaster alumni who rowed to an Olympic silver medal on Aug. 1.

He made his Olympic debut in London this summer.

Csima, along with Jeremiah Brown, who graduated with a degree in commerce in 2007, were part of Canada's men's eight rowing team. Canada finished just behind Germany and ahead of Great Britain in a thrilling race at the Eton Dorney Rowing Centre in Eton, west of London.

Csima picked up rowing at McMaster, helping the Marauders' coxed fours win a silver medal at the Ontario University Athletics rowing championships. He is also a two-time World Championship medalist, winning silver in 2009 and bronze in 2011.
