Butterfield, Jim '70 - Rowing
At Ridley, Jim played Lower School Soccer and Hockey and excelled on the run before he moved to the Upper School where his running dominance continued and he found Rowing. He was an Olympian at the 1972 Munich games representing his home, Bermuda, as an Oarsmen. Not content with that accomplishment, he went back to the road and has now run the Boston, New York, London and Commonwealth Games marathons as well as cycling at the World Masters Games and putting it all together to complete the 1981 Hawaiian Ironman Triathlon in 7th place.
