ASU Olympians

It looks like ASU is well represented in the Beijing Olympics, which open on August 8. There are 11 current and former student-athletes competing for their home countries.

ASU’s Olympic “team”:

• Seth Amoo, Ghana, track and field, 200-meter dash.
• Lewis Banda, Zimbabwe, track and field, 400-meter dash.
• Ante Cvitkovic, Croatia, swimming, 400-meter medley relay.
• Jacquelyn Johnson, United States, track and field, heptathlon.
• Mohammed Madwa, Kuwait, swimming, 50-meter freestyle, 100-meter freestyle.
• Gal Nevo, Israel, swimming, 200-meter individual medley.
• Joel Phillip, Grenada, track and field, 400-meter dash.
• Joona Puhakka, Finland, diving, 3-meter springboard.
• Trevell Quinley, United States, track and field, long jump.
• Shawn Redhage, Australia, basketball.
• Alison Williamson, Great Britain, archery, individual 70 meters.

Most of these competitions don't necessarily rile up American interest, and most of the athletes are representing other nations, but I think that is an indication of just how far-reaching the ASU athletic department can be in finding and acquiring talent.

It has to be very exciting to be in college and still be able to compete on the world's biggest stage. We here at House of Sparky will be cheering for all of these athletes.

A-S-U!
