Sean Furey made a dream come true with his spot in London at the 2012 Olympic Games. He placed fourth at the Olympic Trials, but advanced when throwers ahead of him did not have the Olympic "A" standard. Furey held the top mark in the U.S. in 2012. His trip to London was the second Team USA spot for Furey after also making the World Outdoor team in 2009. A standout in the Ivy League, he holds the Dartmouth school record in the javelin of 242-03. Furey earned a 3.80 GPA at Dartmouth with his major in Engineering. In his time at Methuen High School, he captured two state championships in the javelin along with a national championship in the event. He currently lives in San Diego with his wife Mattie and works as a mechanical engineer with the United States Navy.
