it's not for time."
"The medals really count."
Boosting the Michigan-related
medal count has been Brazil's Gustavo
Borges.
The former Wolverine grabbed his
second medal of the Games on
Monday night by finishing third in the
100-meter freestyle competition.
Borges earned his first medal, a sil-
ver, in Saturday night's 50-meter
freestyle race.
Borges' performance in the 100 did
not quite equal his showing at the 1992

Barcelona Games. The Brazilian
claimed a silver medal in the event th
year.
Michigan's John Piersma is one
swimmer who has not quite been up.to
the standard set by current and former
Wolverines in Atlanta.
So far, the sophomore has compet-
ed in both the 100-meter and 400-
meter freestyle events, but has failed
to qualify for the finals in either
competition.
Piersma and Dolan were stror@
early in yesterday's preliminary heats,
with Piersma leading at the the first
turn, but both faded during the sixth
lap.
