NCAA student-athletes thriving at the Olympics

NCAA student-athletes - there are at least 132 current or enrolled student-athletes participating in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London – had an impressive first week of competition.

Through Sunday, NCAA student-athletes have combined to win 33 medals (16 gold, 7 silver and 10 bronze). If the student-athletes were their own country, they would rank fifth in the medal tally behind China (64), the United States (61), Great Britain (38) and Russia (37).

The 132 participants would also put NCAA student-athletes as the country with the 24th most participants in the Games. That ranks just behind the Czech Republic, which has 133 athletes competing at the Games and just ahead of Belgium, which sent a delegation of 118 athletes to London.
