Olympians to hit the water at this weekend’s Head of the Charles

Businesses sponsoring boats in the Head of the Charles Regatta is nothing new, but Jones Lang LaSalle has taken it to another level this year. The real estate company’s “Great8 Boat” consists of an all-Olympic and world-champion team. It includes New Zealand’s Mahé Drysdale (2012 Olympic champion and five-time world champ), Britain’s Alan Campbell (bronze medalist at the London Olympics this summer), US bronze medalist Glenn Ochal, Aleksandar Aleksandrov of Azerbaijan (fifth place in London), Germany’s Marcel Hacker (bronze medalist at the 2000 Sydney Olympics), Lassi Karonnen of Sweden (fourth place in London), Norway’s Olaf Tufte (gold medalist at the 2008 Beijing Games), and Slovenia’s Iztok Cop (bronze medalist in London). The Regatta takes place this weekend.
