The Meijer State Games of Michigan is recognizing the achievements of its athletes by launching the All-Michigan Athlete and State Champ honor programs. 2015 marked the inaugural year of the acknowledgement.
The All-Michigan Athlete honorees comprise the gold medal winners in individual events from the 2016 Winter and Summer Games.
The State Champs list has all of the gold medal teams from the 2016 Winter and Summer Games.
Executive Director of the Meijer State Games of Michigan, Eric Engelbarts, stated:
"The All-Michigan Athlete and State Champs designation is a great way to honor athletes that may not be able to gain statewide recognition through traditional means. This especially applies to those athletes that are competing in non-traditional sports that are not recognized at the high school varsity level."
