As we ramp up our USC Olympic coverage in anticipation of the London 2012 Games, which begin July 27, let's drop some knowledge about Troy's golden past.
Here are the key bragging points:
- USC has produced more Olympians, Olympic medalists and Olympic gold medalists than any other U.S. university.
- Trojans have won 123 gold medals, including one in every Olympics since 1912.
- If USC competed as a country, its 262 total medals would be 17th among all countries, while its 123 gold medals would be 12th.
Rose has the largest haul with six total medals (four golds, one silver and one bronze).
