RIO DE JANEIRO -- After fulfilling her goal of medaling in five straight Olympics, Britains most decorated female athlete isnt quite sure what comes next. Sean Rodriguez Jersey .But dont be surprised if Katherine Graingers next endeavor involves studying serial killers and other brutal criminals.Its quite a dark subject matter, the 40-year-old Scottish rower told The Associated Press on Thursday after winning silver in the womens sculls with Victoria Thornley. Its looking at the human experience quite at the limit. You look at very extreme personalities and extreme behavior.Over the past two decades Grainger has managed to combine advanced academic studies with a career in competitive rowing. Before Rio de Janeiro, she had won silver medals in Sydney, Athens and Beijing and gold in London. No other British woman has five Olympic medals.Grainger has a law degree from the University of Edinburgh and took a timeout from rowing after the 2012 Olympics to finish her Ph.D. at Kings College in London.I was studying the concept of life meaning life as a sentence. That looks at the worst of the worst criminals in the view of the law, she said.Once that was out of the way she returned to rowing, but just barely made the British team for Rio. Grainger said she hasnt decided on her future yet but doubts shell be back for a sixth Olympics in Tokyo in 2020.Id be very surprised if it goes beyond this point, Grainger said. Im happy, Im content, Im thrilled, and I can walk away into the sunset and let other people have this dream.She and Thornley, who is 12 years younger, were in gold-medal position until the final stretch of Thursdays race. They were beaten by Magdalena Fularczyk-Kozlowska and Natalia Madaj of Poland.We just ran out a little bit right at the end there. But Im so proud. I would far rather we do that and not quite make it than never put ourselves in that position, Grainger said. I really, really did not want to leave my fifth Olympic Games without a fifth Olympic medal.In other rowing races, New Zealands Eric Murray and Hamish Bond successfully defended their Olympic gold in the mens pair, drifting away from the other crews after the first 500 meters. The Kiwis remain undefeated in the event, with 69 wins since 2009.Brothers Martin and Valent Sinkovic overtook a Lithuanian crew in the final stretch to win Croatias first ever rowing gold medal. German crews won both the womens and mens quadruple sculls, while Switzerland won the gold in the lightweight mens four. Felipe Vazquez Jersey . Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six. Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookies best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side. Tyler Glasnow Jersey . The Redskins announced Monday that the quarterback who led the team to the Super Bowl championship in the 1987 season will serve as a personnel executive. http://www.piratesrookiestore.com/ . Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday.
