FAT, DUMB, AND DRUNK IS NO WAY TO ROW.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel introduces a local Olympian with an unusual lede.
Megan Kalmoe wanted to make a change after her freshman year at the University of Washington, when she filled the gaps between "partying myself and my waistline into oblivion" with a whole lot of nothing.

On the scale of slug to Olympian, she was much closer to slug.

Kalmoe, a native of St. Croix Falls, Wis., decided to do something totally out of character as a sophomore and walked onto the school's rowing team.
College is supposed to be about second chances, and Ms Kalmoe has surely done well with hers. All the same, is there nothing the university can do to diminish the incentives to party to oblivion?
