Experienced Roller steps into Olympic spotlight

Mimi Roller, 21, a St. John native, took a year off from St. Mary's College of Maryland to focus on her Olympic sailing quest. She punched her ticket for London after she finished sixth among 66 sailors at the 2012 Laser World Championships in Boltenhagen, Germany, in May. Roller finished eighth overall among 13 sailors at the 2011 Pan American Games, and led St. Mary's to a third-place showing at the ICSA Women's National Championship two years ago. This will be her first appearance at the Olympics.
GO MIMI, GO! SAIL YOUR HEART OUT!
