Several U-M student-athletes and coaches were honored at the Sept. 23 regents meeting for their participation in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece. Regent Rebecca McGowan read a resolution that noted the University was well-represented at the Olympics and that the regents take great pride in U-M's athletes. "We were captivated by the Summer Olympics in Greece," said President Mary Sue Coleman.
