Eleanor Logan is going back to the Olympics for another shot at gold.

Logan, 24, of Boothbay Harbor, was named to the U.S. women’s eight crew that will row in the London Summer Olympics in July.

She was a member of the 2008 women’s eight team that won the gold medal in the Beijing Summer Games, along with Camden’s Anna Goodale, who retired last year.

Logan, rowing with Erin Cafaro, had won the silver medal in the pair at the World Cup I in Belgrade, Serbia, and also won the pair at the 2012 National Selection Regatta this spring. Those wins qualified both for the Olympics in the pairs. But they declined that berth.

Both are now on the women’s eight. In fact, six members of the crew that won gold in Beijing return to the women’s eight for London.

Logan has been on the women’s eight crew that won the world championships in 2011 and 2010. The U.S. women’s eight is the six-time defending world champion boat.

Logan graduated from Stanford in 2011.
