Olympics / Team USA Local Athletes in the Olympics: Day 2 by Daniel Popoloski August 8, 2016 Several local athletes participated in many different events throughout the Olympic Games Sunday. Here’s how they all fared. In Olympic women’s road race, Glen Falls’ own Megan Guarnier placed eleventh. Despite her proximity to the top of the standings, Guarnier wasn’t really anywhere close to placing in the medals, as she was far back in the pack. She was expected to compete for a medal after winning bronze in the most recent championships. Teammate Mara Abbott was closest, finishing fourth after running out of energy with only 150m left to go in the race to be overtaken. Matt Anderson of West Seneca, NY was a part of the United States loss in men’s indoor volleyball, when they were upset by team Canada. Boyd Martin and Phillip Dutton didn’t participate yet, but they are part of the team that finished in medal contention in equestrian. They will be competing in the second day of competition tomorrow. Miles Chamley-Watson of New York City was unable to win out of the round of 32 in individual epee. He lost a nail biter 13-15 to Russia’s Artur Akhmatkhuzin, who would end up losing the round after. Chamley-Watson’s teammate, Alexander Massialas finished second, earning the silver medal. Chamley-Watson will compete again on August 12th in the team foil competition along with Massialas and Gerek Meinhardt. They are expected to medal. Casey Eichfeld of Drums, PA finished twelfth in the preliminary heats of the single canoe slalom, qualifying for the semifinals. The top 14 racers qualified for the next round. He will participate in the semis on August 9th. Between then, on Monday, he will participate in the doubles event with Devin McEwan of Salisbury, CT.
