You Want Someone Who Can Change A Sport? Michelle Wie Can Change The World

Interesting article published by ESPN on 19-year-old rising star golfer Michelle Wie.   This week she enters the final stage of the LPGA qualifying school (commonly referred to as “Q-school” for those familiar with golf sport vernacular).  Best of luck to her!

This is the first time I’ve seen an asian american of this caliber on the sports scene since Michael Chang was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame earlier this year for his immense career in the 1990’s.   The other big sports splash I’ve seen recently is Canada’s Carol Huynh who took the gold medal in women’s wrestling at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing.
