Two Johns Hopkins students are bound for competition in the 2000 Summer Olympics, which open Friday, Sept. 15, in Sydney, Australia.
Joanna S. Zeiger, a doctoral student in genetic epidemiology at the School of Public Health, is a member of the U.S. Olympic Triathlon Team. The 30-year-old Baltimore native placed second in last year's North American Triathlon Championships and came in seventh at the 1999 World Championships long-distance race. This is the first time triathlon will be a medal event.
