Ritzenhein leaves Oregon Project

Ritzenhein leaves Oregon Project
Dathan Ritzenhein is moving back to Michigan, according to mlive.com. The 31-year-old will no longer be a member of the Oregon Project, but will still be sponsored by Nike. Coach Alberto Salazar will remain as an advisor to Ritzenhein.
 
“It’s something that’s always been in the back of my mind, and it would only get harder to come back as our kids get older,” Ritzenhein told Peter Wallner. “And no matter what, I always wanted to come back to West Michigan and Grand Rapids area.

The three-time U.S. Olympian noted that the move had "nothing to do with Portland or my relationship with Alberto." But rather, the move was one that would bring Ritzenhein and his wife, Kalin Toedebusch, both closer to their Grand Rapids area home.

“I don’t think I would have been happy if I didn’t come back. This is really where my heart is.”
 
Ritzenhein has lived in Portland, OR since 2007.
