| No Comments

The Pac-12 outpaces all other collegiate conferences when it comes time for the Olympic Games.  The "Conference of Champions" will send 239 athletes, coaches and other officials with ties to Pac-12 institutions to London 2012.

Of the 529 athletes on Team USA, 119 of them are Pac-12 alums.  If you do the math, that makes up roughly 25% of the American roster.
