2013 Olympic Medal Ceremony: Track and Field

Welcome to the 2013 Olympic Award Ceremony for Track and Field!

The Decathlon Medal

This medal is for the the student who we felt did the best in every category: content, writing skills, style, grammar, and storytelling. This writer excelled in every event that he tackled, and by doing so wins the award for the best blog this week.   The award goes to:

DJ Rowe – Managing the Madness of a 20 Year Old Over Night Millionaire

The Showmanship Medal

This medal spotlights a blogger who has demonstrated her superb showmanship ability through her artistic blogging style.  She used a neon pink font color, which not only stood out to the judges, but also showed her creativity in design.

And the medal goes to…

Florence Griffith-Joyner (Flo Jo) – One of the Fastest Olympic Runners… with a little flare

 Kaitlyn Alvino – Strategy or Ethics?

The Best Sprinter Medal

This incredible award goes to the student who had the best beginning of their blog.  This person started their blog strong with a great beginning that captured the readers attention and hooked them right from the start.  The medal goes to…

Frank Berman – Brain Damage: Ethical?

The Steeple Chase Medal

This medal goes to the student who was not afraid to get a little dirty in his post, not only in language but in content as well. The quote that stood out the most to us was “He ignores the negative energy and continues to be a positive player who does not do stupid shit. What I am trying to say is…Where sports fans realize it or not, they like assholes.”  This medal is awarded to…


Mike Muscala – Sports Fan Love Assholes

The Shot Put Medal

This medal is awarded to the student who hit us in the gut with the most emotional and heartwarming post.  This blog addressed many ethical issues that really hit home and the video made us very emotional.  This award goes to…

Sal Vallala – Sports Ethics vs. Competition

The High Jump Award

This medal is given to the student who reached a whole new bar with his post. Both in his personal story and his analysis we felt he reached a new height that showed off his potential as a blogger.

And the winner is…

Kelly Morque – How College Tennis Corrupted Me

The Long Distance Medal

The medal is awarded to…

And last but not least…

The Disqualified Medal
