Olympic medalist, former Badger, wants to sing on 'The Voice'

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Mar 2, 2014

It appears an Olympic medalist with Wisconsin ties wants to show her singing skills on NBC's "The Voice."

USA Hockey's Twitter account gave word of former Wisconsin Badgers hockey player Meghan Duggan, a silver medalist in Sochi, and her apparent singing desires.

In a previous interview on NHL Network, Duggan also expressed her love of using her voice.

"I love music.  I have probably 10,000 songs on my iTunes library.  It's something that I love." she said.

"I love to sing country music.  I love the lead sunger of Sugarland.  I love the Dixie Chicks...I sing in the shower, I sing in the car, I sing in the locker room."

"She's really good," said fellow Team USA and Badgers teammate Hilary Knight.

Hmmm...how would she do in a singing contest against another purported athlete-singer with cheesehead connections, Green Bay Packers guard T.J. Lang?

His teammate, Josh Sitton, made it a point to tout Lang's ability multiple times to "The Voice" back in October.
