Photo of  Shelley Pearson Shelley Pearson flies to Chile tomorrow for her one and only shot at qualifying for the Olympic Games in August.

Pearson, who is hoping to become the first Bermuda rower to compete at the Games since Jim Butterfield in Munich in 1972, will compete at the Latin American Continental Qualification Regatta in less than two weeks’ time.

A top-six finish in Valparaiso, Chile, would secure Pearson a spot in Rio, although she is not looking much past the end of the month.

As well as trying to reach the Games, Pearson is coming to the end of her master’s degree in child development and education at Oxford University.

“The most I’ve been able to look beyond the regatta are the two weeks following, during which I have four final assignments due and two exams,” Pearson said.
