'M' divers shine
By JON MORELAND
Michigan's national diving prominence was given a boost
at the U.S. Olympic Trials last week when three Wolverine
divers qualified for the International team. The trials for the
squad were held in Austin, Texas.
The three divers who made the team are Barb Weinstein,
who placed second in the ten-meter platform, and Kevin
Machemer and Chris Seufert, who bagged thirds in the men's
and women's three-meters, respectively.

them, one might think that the athletes won't miss the Olym-
pics all that much.
Not true, says Kimball, who coached the U.S. contingent
in Munich in 1972. "There's no substitute for the Olympics.
None of these other meets even compare. We've just got-to
adjust the goals we've set and do our best in the other
It's not too hard to guess Kimball's feelings about his
crew's absence from Moscow next week. "Politics and sports
should not be mixed," he maintains with a great degree of
emotion. "The athletes are the ones who suffer the most. It's
too bad tht the situation came to this, but there's not a thing
we can do about it. That's the way it is, and we just have to

Japan and China will help at least a little as the swimmers
"accept" the unfortunate situation.
