MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesota Olympian Amanda Smock is getting an outpouring of support Thursday from her husband's co-workers at Schwegman, Lundberg & Woessner law firm. Greg Smock is an attorney there.
They've declared it "Team Smock Day". Everyone in the office is wearing "Team Smock" t-shirts and signing a banner to send Smock in London. They even decorated Greg's office and have marked, on the floor, the distance that qualified Amanda for the Olympics in the triple jump. "Obviously family and friends would always support you, but to have your workplace come out and support, not only yourself, but also a spouse - it shows a lot about the people you work with," Greg says.
Amanda is the only woman representing the U.S.A in the triple jump at the Olympics. Originally from Melrose, Amanda and her husband now live in Minneapolis. The two met while attending North Dakota State University in Fargo.
Smock won the triple jump at the Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon with a jump of 45 feet, 9 inches.
