Olympic Exhibit Features Two Former NMU Student-Athletes

LANSING, Mich. – A new exhibit called “Faster, Higher, Stronger: Michigan Women in Olympic History,” is currently being displayed at the Michigan Women’s Historical Center and Hall of Fame in Lansing, Mich. (213 W. Main Street). The exhibit will be on display until Dec. 28, 2008. 
Northern Michigan University’s own Lindsay Williams and Lindsey Weier are highlighted. Both competed at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy. 
At least a 100 of these women have called Michigan home, growing up here, training here, or retiring here after their competitive years.  Hands-on activities for young and old are also featured.
