AGRC-0829 jacket 2

As a celebration for International Sports Day, today’s AGRC A to Z highlights an item from the Blue Raiders Sports Hall of Fame collection. MTSU Alum, Daniel Klemetz wore this jacket during his time on the Canadian  Olympic Men’s Tennis team in 2004. Originally from Sweden, Klemetz played for the Blue Raiders’ tennis team from 1999-2003. During his time, he won multiple matches and championships, including the 2002 Icy Hot/ITA All-American Championship overall winner award. After playing for the Canadian Olympic team, Klemetz played on the ATP World tour for a few years before returning home to Sweden. Today, Klemetz is still considered one of the top four or five recruits in Middle Tennessee history.
