With Rhodes Scholarship, Moore exemplifies Michigan

In swimming, it’s not uncommon to see races decided by one-hundredth of a second. The slightest alteration in focus or motion can cause a dream to fall by the poolside.

This is why rare victories are treasured — all the competitors know the importance of finishing every detail of the race until the absolute last nanosecond, but only one swimmer can win.

Moore was selected Nov. 22 as one of the 32 students for the American Rhodes Scholar Class of 2015.
