    -- A total of 12 current and former Ohio State student-athletes and
    coaches will take part in the 2004 Olympic Summer Games, set to
    begin Aug. 13 in Athens, Greece. This grows the number of Buckeyes
    who have competed all-time in the Olympics to 107. Three of the 12
    will serve as coaches, including Miles Avery (assistant coach, men's
    gymnastics), Doug Beal (head coach, men' s volleyball) and Linda
    Witter (assistant coach, synchronized swimming). The nine athletes are
    Raj Bhavsar (men's gymnastics, alternate, USA), Louise Bond-
    Williams (fencing, sabre, England), Robert Gary (3,000 meter
    steeplechase, USA), Gulsah Gunenc (swimming, 100 and 200 meter
    butterfly, Turkey), Becky Jasontek (synchronized swimming, USA),
    Nick Rees (swimming, 100 meter butterfly, Bahamas), Jason Rogers
    (fencing, sabre, USA), Katie Smith (women's basketball, USA) and
    Blaine Wilson (men's gymnastics, USA). In addition, Ohio State
    wrestling head coach Russ Hellickson and women's soccer head coach
    Lori Walker will assist in NBC's television coverage of the games.
    Hellickson will serve as the play-by-play talent for wrestling, while
    Walker will provide color commentary for women's soccer

    OSUsushichic Fired up! Ready to go!

    I read where the Hamm twins (gymnastics) were training in Columbus. Did they attend OSU?

    No, but Columbus has become a hotbed for training in USA Men's Gymnastics.

    However, not knowing where Paul Hamm did go to school, I just found an interview with him. He said he's currently attending UW-Milwaukee, but intends to transfer to Ohio State after the olympics!

    VprHis Get off my lawn, you hooligans!

    Starting at ND this fall...

    Scary when you consider the kind of wins she'll tally in the next 4 years. Too bad we can't say the same for your football team :)

    Sorry, Chief... I think they'll get better (with or without Ty, if you know what I mean), but that girl's got a lot of W's ahead of her.
  8. First Gold in fencing since 1904! WOW!

    Speaking of football I was on the Michigan board and I was shocked at the respect they are giving ND this year as most think the game will be very close! After last years close game?? LOL!!

    BTW ! To the tough guy who sent the "we don't give a shit, retard"
    note in my rep section! Get some balls and sign it!
