Ex-Wolverines have been in the news recently and for some very good reasons. Michael Phelps, former swimmer, broke his own record in the 400m individual medley on Sunday night. The Baltimore Sun asks if Michael can become the next Tiger Woods...The title was enough for me not to read the article.
Two former Wolverine baseball players have made the prestigious Futures Game during the All-Star festivities at Yankee Stadium. One name is probably more familiar to you than you think...Clayton Richard, former Michigan quarterback who left the team to focus on baseball appears to have made the right decision. He's been tearing it up for the White Sox triple-A farm club along with fellow teammate Chris Getz who is down in Charlotte.
Three former women rowers have been selected to represent their countries as well. Heather Mandoli and Janine Hanson from Canada and Ellen Tomek from the USA. Congrats to our Alumni! Check out mgoblue.com for complete coverage of all our potential Olympians!
