There are lots of rivalries in sports, and some are bigger than others. Florida has a rivalry with Florida State, but their rivalry with Georgia is bigger. Texas and Texas Tech have a rivalry, but it’s nowhere near as significant as Texas-Oklahoma.

And for Tyler Clary, the Michigan – Notre Dame rivalry can’t hold a candle to the Notre Dame – Cancer rivalry.

The former Wolverine, and 2012 200 backstroke Olympic gold medalist, will be the featured guest at the 3rd annual Fighting Irish Swim Clinic on September 7th in South Bend, Indiana, crossing the lines of one of the oldest and most heated rivalries in the country.

The event, thought up by Notre Dame women’s head coach Brian Barnes, is run in connection with the NCAA’s huge-money ‘Coaches vs. Cancer’ events in the fall semester to raise money for cancer research.
