More Maryland Medalists

August 10, 2008

Last Sunday we identified 14 athletes from Maryland who won medals in the Summer Olympics. Below are others who earned medals at Summer Games.




*Hannan won gold as a member of the 400-meter medley relay team in Sydney. He helped the U.S. team reach the final by swimming in the preliminaries and earned gold when the relay unit won in world-record time. A 1998 graduate of Mount St. Joseph, Hannan was a 17-time All-American at the University of Texas. He coaches swimming at the University of Washington.




*Henderson, from Fort Washington, was part of the gold medal-winning 400 medley relay team in Atlanta. His specialty was the butterfly, and he just missed qualifying for the final in the 100 fly at the 1996 Games. A graduate of Friendly, he swam for California.




*Keaser was the first African-American to medal in wrestling at the Olympics when he won a silver medal at the Montreal Games in the 149.5-pound weight class. A graduate of Brooklyn Park, Keaser wrestled at the Naval Academy, where he was a two-time All-American.




*A member of the Orioles from 1995 to 1997, Krivda was a member of the gold-winning U.S. team in Sydney. A resident of Perry Hall, he is the general manager and director of instruction at Extra Innings Baseball and Softball Training.




*One of the top female athletes from Maryland, Shriver teamed with doubles partner Zina Garrison to win gold at the Seoul Games. She has 22 career Grand Slam doubles titles, winning 20 with Martina Navratilova. The two formed perhaps the greatest doubles pairing of all time. Shriver won 21 singles titles and 112 doubles titles in a Hall of Fame career.




*A graduate of Friends School who went on to Virginia and North Carolina, Weinberg won a bronze medal at the Montreal Games in 800 freestyle. She's a physical therapist in McLean, Va.
