Michael DiSanto '08 Delivers Inspiring Talk in Chapel
Michael DiSanto '08 spoke at a recent Friday morning chapel and delivered an inspiring talk detailing his road from Belmont Hill to the Rio Olympics.
Michael was a three-sport captain for three New England Championship teams at Belmont Hill in football, wrestling, and crew. But his passion was crew, and he would go on to row at Harvard for four years, then went to Princeton, New Jersey where he spent a year rowing on the U.S. Rowing National Team. His next stop was Oxford, where he rowed for two years while earning his Master's Degree. He then returned to Princeton and made the National Team, where he qualified for the Rio Olympics.
In chapel, he talked about the road to the Olympics and the lessons learned, and provided powerful and inspirational messages for the boys. Enjoy his speech, which follows an introduction from Mr Richards, his former coach.
