Linda S. Miller was a two-year Colonials letter winner in women’s rowing in 1993 and ’94 after transferring to GW from Boston University. Her efforts helped to elevate the women’s program.

She also won a bronze medal at the Champion International Regatta (now the ECAC League Championship).

For the next six years, Miller trained full-time for the U.S. National Team (’94-2000) in an effort to pursue her dream of becoming an Olympic athlete. During that time, she was a member of the national team at the 1997, ’98 and ’99 World Rowing Championships. She won a bronze medal in the women’s pair at the 1998 World Championships at Cologne, Germany and a silver medal in the women’s eight at the ’99 World Championships in St. Catharine’s, Canada.

In 2000, Miller became GW’s third women’s rowing Olympian when she earned a seat in the U.S. women’s eight at Sydney, Australia. Racing in the premier event six years after concluding her GW rowing career, Miller helped the U.S. to a sixth place finish.
