Undergraduate Lindsey Carmichael Brings Home Bronze from Paralympics

Mon, October 13, 2008
Junior English major Lindsey Carmichael recently returned from the Paralympic Games  in Beijing as a bronze-medal winner in women’s archery.  A resident of Lago Vista, Texas, Carmichael is an avid student of literature and an excellent writer.  Those who followed her summer blog—appropriately titled “Rings and Arrows: The Adventures of an American Archer Dreaming in Beijing”—recognize Carmichael’s literary talents.  As Professor Douglas Bruster observed: “It’s rare to find someone with both a special athletic ability and the means to describe athletic experience in such engaging prose.  Lindsey possesses real gifts, and has only started to discover what she can do with them.”  Carmichael will resume her studies at UT in the spring.
