Team Type 1's Two Olympians Ready For Beijing
Team Type 1’s Moises Aldape and Glen Chadwick may be representing different countries at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, but they are taking the same approach when it comes to their preparation.
– Southerland, Eldridge, Fabio Calabria and Timothy Hargrave – have Type 1 diabetes.
Southerland said having two of the team’s top athletes in the Olympics is monumental for Team Type 1.
“I feel truly privileged to be able to call both Moises and Glen my teammates, and it just goes to show what type of program we have,” he said. “Race results aside, both are great guys, and truly deserve the opportunity. All of us on Team Type 1 are pulling for them to try and bring home a medal for their country.”
The games of the 2008 Olympics begin on Friday, August 8.
