honors, to be sure. Six current
and former Michigan athletes,
and a former rowing instructor
here, earned medals. Beginning
today the Daily will feature
Michigan's Olympic athletes.
By PHIL NUSSEL
Brian Diemer is an exhausted
man.
Since the former Michigan cross
country runner won a bronze medal
in the Olympics last month in the
3000-meter steeplechase, he has
been on a 10-meet tour of Europe.
He returned last Thursday to his
home in Grand Rapids.
IN EUROPE, Diemer continued to
improve his times despite the exten-
sive traveling and jet lags. He won
the steeplechase in Berlin, finished

featured eastern bloc competition.
Since returning, Diemer has
decided to rest for about a month.
"I'm not going to run a step for a
month," he said.
Over the past few months,
Diemer's goals have changed many
times. His coach and Michigan's
head cross country coach, Ron
Warhurst, said, "Originally, he just
wanted to make the (Olympic)
team. Then he wanted to make the
finals. He was quite confident. For
him, it was a dream come true."

the games were ready to begin. The
village had everything for the
athletes from video games to
movies.
But when his event began, Diemer
was all business. The steeplechase
race was a thriller, with Diemer
starting slow then moving in to
claim third place at the finish line.
He just nipped teammate Henry
Marsh, who had recorded a faster
time than Diemer going into the
race, to take the bronze.
Although some athletes' victories
turned them into media stars,
Diemer's Olympic experience was
anything but an ego trip. Glory
won't be his finest memory. "I think
I'll remember that my family was
there, Carrie's (his wife)family was
there, and everybody I knew was
there. It was a real team effort."

him at the airport. Diemer
remarked, "I'm going to start out
slowly and be a normal person for a
change."

ber for the Tigers to seven. Any com-
bination of Detroit victories and losses
by Toronto totaling seven will clinch the
American League East championship
for the Tigers.
DAN PETRY 17-8, who blanked the
Orioles for 19 innings this season before
yielding Rick Dempsey's career-high
10th homer in the fifth, was chased in
the seventh before Doug Bair snuffed
out the rally. Willie Hernandez pitched
the ninth for Detroit.
The Tigers had three straight two-out
hits to finish Baltimore starter Bill

PETRY, WHO beat the Orioles fob
the third time this season, was lifted in
the seventh after an RBI double by
Dempsey and a two-out single by Mike
Young. Bair then induced Cal Ripken
Jr. to hit into a force.
The 22-game hitting streak off,
Baltimore's Eddie Murray, which set a
club record, came to an end. He walked
twice and grounded out twice.
Barbaro Garbey had a runscorin.j
single and another run scored in the
ninth on an error by Ripken.

Wolverines continue climb

From staff reports
Don't tell Bo Schembechler, but his
Wolverines are on the move up the polls
again - this time to third in the
Associate Press' weekly tally.
Michigan took a jump in the AP poll
worthy of the leap Schembechler took
after Saturday's win over Miami. Bo's
boys went from 14th to third in writers'
rankings. Monday night college foot-
ball's other prestigious poll, the UPI,
named the Wolverines as the nation's
second best team.
- MICHIGAN PICKED up three first-

place votes in the AP poll, four UPI.
Nebraska is number one in both polls.
Both after Saturday's game and
during Monday's press. conference,
Schembechler emphasized that the
polls are relatively meaningless this
early in the season. Miami was ranked
first going into the Michigan game. The
loss dropped the Hurricanes into a tie
for fifth in the AP poll and eighth UPI.
THE LAST TIME the Wolverines
were ranked this high was in 1981. The
Wolverines spent a short time at the
top, however, as Wisconsin knocked

them off their perch with a 21-14 win in
the season-opener.

polls. The Huskies defeated North-
western in their season opener.
Other Big Ten teams in the top twenty
are Iowa (fifth in both polls) and Ohio
State (ninth AP, 11th UPI).
