On Saturday, the United States women's eight rowing team claimed a gold medal, and they were aided by former Michigan State Spartans rower Emily Regan.

A 2010 MSU graduate and 2010 Big Ten Rower of the Year, Regan is the first former Spartans rower to win an Olympic gold medal.

If you want to watch a replay of the race, go here and skip ahead to the 1:38 mark. Even Spartans football head coach Mark Dantonio is pumped up seeing Regan take home the gold.

Congratulations to Regan on this amazing accomplishment.
