Voices of the World Dwarf Games at MSU

John Patrick McGuire

All this week, 395 athletes from 17 nations have been competing in 14 events all over the MSU campus and the Lansing area as part of the 2013 World Dwarf Games.

The very concept of competitive athletics among dwarfs was conceived right here in East Lansing nearly 30 years ago. It has evolved into this week’s international competition, which is the largest of its kind in history.  

WKAR and Current State decided to do something special to commemorate the occasion. Current State producer Joe Linstroth discusses the project, and brings us the voices of some of the athletes.
