    The SEC at the Olympics

    The SEC traditionally has a strong showing at the Olympics. Auburn has 24 athletes and 4 coaches this time, including 6 current student athletes and 6 former swimmers who continue to train at Auburn. Auburn's athletes are swimmers and track & field.

    But I'm sure some SEC schools are sending more athletes than Auburn. Latest numbers indicae that more than 150 athletes with ties to SEC schools are competing this year.

    How many athletes from your university will you be watching this year?

    UGA has 26 athletes on the various Olympic squads. We also have a few coaches as well.

    Allison Schmitt, a swimmer in the 200 and 400 meter freestyle events and a member of the 4x100 and 4x200 relay teams, is probably our best shot for US medals.

    John Isner in tennis is probably our most famous alum in the Games.

    Allison is a terrific swimmer. Best of luck to her.

    Auburn's Cesar Cielo is the world record holder in the 50 and 100 freestyle and took gold in the 50 last Olympics. But not for the U.S. He swam for Auburn and still trains at Auburn, but he swims for Brazil in the Olympics. He'll be pushed hard this time around, though. He does not own the fastest time this year.

    MSU has just one and they are competing for Canada. Just scanning the list it looks like Florida and Texas A&M have a few to go along with Georgia and Auburn.

    Kara Lynn Joyce is the most decorated. Isner is prob the most known since he plays a sport that is on tv more, Debbie Ferguson is an icon in the Bahamas and Colwill is a legit diver

    Allison swam great in the 400 free. Beat the defending Olympic champion. Congrats on that Silver!

    UGA's Schmitt wins gold medal in London

    Published: July 31, 2012 Updated 5 hours ago

    By Seth Emerson semerson@macon.com


    ATHENS - Allison Schmitt has added her crowning achievement to an already sterling Olympic career.

    The Georgia senior won a gold medal on Tuesday, obliterating the field in the 200-meter freestyle event. Her time of 1:53.61 was an Olympic record, and she won by nearly two full seconds. American teammate Missy Franklin finished fourth.

    The gold medal is the first ever for a UGA swimmer in an individual event.

    This is Schmitt's third medal in the London Olympics - but her first gold. She won the silver medal in the 400-meter freestyle on Sunday, a day after swimming for the U.S. bronze medal-winning relay team.

    Schmitt also won a bronze in the relay in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

    Schmitt was born in Pennsylvania, and went to high school in Canton, Mich.

    Allison has done great this Olympics.

    Auburn's only medal so far is Tyler McGill's Silver as a member of the 4x100 Free Relay team. Auburn's Kirsty Coventry, who has 7 medals from previous Olympics, finished 6th in her only even so far. She's recovering from a knee injury and pneumonia, so was a surprise to even make the finals in the grueling 200 IM.
