  While former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee’s presidential campaign didn’t pan out, his daughter’s Olympic campaign is a different story.

Earlier this month, Louisa Chafee earned her spot on the 2016 Olympic Sailing Team. Chafee began sailing as a child, and went onto become a three-time All-American at Brown University.

Rhode Island Public Radio’s Emily Wooldridge caught up with Louisa about her personal journey, and preparations for the Games this summer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
