A rising sophomore at the College of Charleston isn't preparing to move in this weekend.

Instead, Paris Henken is in Rio racing for a medal. 

She and sailing her partner Helena Scutt are going for gold in Thursday's medal round of the Women’s 49er FX Class after finishing at ninth place in a preliminary round. 

Competing in her first Olympic Games, Henken is also the first female Olympian in CofC history.
