Student Peter Vanderkaay Wins Bronze
DeVry University’s very own Olympic student athlete, Peter Vanderkaay, won the bronze medal in the 400-meter freestyle this past Saturday. In speaking with the Detroit Free Press, Peter had the following to say after his medal-winning race:
It felt like a huge relief to get a medal in the 400 because I’ve had more fourth-places in that event than I want to think about. Although it would have been perfect to win, I’m extremely happy with the bronze. I feel like it justifies all the work I’ve put in the past few years.
I’m very proud to represent the USA! Thanks everyone for the support!!!”
Peter is currently working toward a graduate certificate in entrepreneurship from DeVry University’s Keller Graduate School of Management.
