Weber-Gale Part Of Gold Medal Winning Relay Team
By Katie DeLong
The Milwaukee area is home to another Olympic champion Monday morning. Fox Point swimmer Garret Weber-Gale swam the second leg of the men’s 400 meter freestyle relay race in Beijing Sunday…a race the American team won by the tiniest of margins. Former Marquette athlete Dwayne Wade was a perfect 7 for 7 shooting as the Americans beat China 101-70 on the first day of men’s basketball competition. Michael Redd of the Milwaukee Bucks added nine points. A tough break for gymnast Chellsie Memmel of West Allis: she fell off the uneven bars during her routine. As a result, she’s out of the individual event finals. She’ll still take part in the team competition. Here’s some of what’s happening Monday at the Olympics: at 10:00a .m. on TODAY’S TMJ4, Americans Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser, the top men’s volleyball team in the world, look to bounce back from an opening loss. At 7:00 Monday night, the men’s gymnastics team finals get underway, and swimmer Michael Phelps goes for his third gold medal in the 200 meter freestyle.
