Having swum in Michael Phelps shadow for most of his career, Tyler Clary finally made his first Olympics - and promptly dissed the guy who is headed to his fourth. Clary, 23, of Riverside, Calif., shocked the swimming world Tuesday, when a columnist for a California newspaper quoted him as saying the Baltimore swimmer with a record 14 gold medals to his name doesn't work as hard as he does. “I think the things he could have done if he'd worked as hard as I do would have been even more incredible than what he has pulled off,” Clary said to Jim Alexander of The Press-Enterprise . The remarks caused an instant ruckus online and at University of Tennessee in Knoxville, where Phelps, Clary and the rest of the recently picked U.S. Olympic swim team is training for the Games that begin in 2 1/2 weeks.

The Oakland Mills Tiger Sharks, the team with the fewest members in the Columbia Neighborhood Swim League, had won only one meet since 1993 entering Saturday's competition against the Clary's Forest Sundevils. But they are back in the win column, thanks to a 307-296 victory over the Sundevils at the Swansfield pool. Tigers Sharks head coach Brandon Thornton, 24, remembers the victory 14 years ago when he was a 10-year-old swimmer on the team. He watched them win once more as an assistant coach in a meet against Clary's Forest in 2003.

An awards banquet is usually a tribute to excellence and sacrifice, not a life-changing experience. But Justin Clary's life took a sharp turn last night. Clary, a guard on Eastern Tech's football team, was planning to enlist in the Air Force the day after he graduated. But then a funny thing happened: Clary and Patapsco girls basketball player Brittany Fairley were chosen as the McCormick Unsung Heroes at the awards banquet at the Hunt Valley Marriott. Clary and Fairley will receive the Charles Perry McCormick scholarships, worth $30,000 each over four years.
