: Olympic swimmer Scott Goldblatt blogs [shhhh; don’t tell the IOC; see the post below] about Michael Phelps’ amazing decision to forego another medal to let a teammate compete and win.

Goldblatt also wants us all to know about a charity auction of Olympic athletes’ memorabilia that he is organizing for the Melanoma Research foundation. Details here. Pass it on! More info on the auction:

ATHENS – Together with eBay Giving Works, two-time Olympian Scott Goldblatt ( Scotch Plains, New Jersey / Kansas City, Kansas ) is organizing an Olympic Team memorabilia charity auction to benefit the Melanoma Research Foundation….

In May of 1997, Goldblatt lost his mother, Linda Goldblatt, to this disease.

“I have seen what this disease can do, and together with your help, hope to educate others in the prevention of the disease,” said Goldblatt.

Goldblatt is asking Team USA members to help in this auction by donating a unique item.
