SBE graduate Lara Butler to complete at the Rio Olympics

SBE Grad Lara Butler

Lara Butler, who recently graduated with a 1st Class Honours BSc in Economics with Accounting, has been selected to represent her home nation, the Cayman Islands, at this year’s Olympic Games in Rio.

After a long wait for confirmation of her selection, Lara was delighted to receive the invitation (along with her brother Geoffrey who is also in the team) to compete in the 100m backstroke event.

Lara said she had initially hoped to be selected, but had almost given up as the Games approached and she had not heard:

“It was a big shock; I’m overwhelmed. This is what everything else leads up to. The Olympics is the be-all and end-all for swimming.”

All the best Lara!
