Megan Jendrick: No retirement gifts, please

Posted by Ron Judd

A reader asks what's now to become of Megan Jendrick of Tacoma, who brings home a silver medal after her role on the U.S. medley relay team.

Here's a note from Megan on a blog she's writing from Beijing, which sheds a little light:

I'm not going to say these are my last Olympics; with so many articles having come out, each with their own little twist, some people have interpreted that I was retiring for good now. I just want everyone to know I've never said that and I'm very excited to keep racing and hopefully continue to represent America.

You can read the rest of her impressions of Beijing, and the performance of longtime teammate Michael Phelps, here.
