(WAOW)-  Former Panther standout and Olympian runner Chris Solinsky was back in Stevens Point over the weekend as SPASH inducted him into the school's athletic Hall of Fame.  We caught up with Solinsky to talk about his excitement for the upcoming Summer Olympics in 2012.

Says Chris Solinsky, "The Olympic year, in 2012, the mission is to not only make the team but represent Stevens Point, the Midwest and Wisconsin and the US as well as I can at the Olympics and hopefully get a medal, whatever the shade would be awesome, but a gold would be icing on the cake. "
