Alright Cal fans, we have MORE Olympics to watch! More! It's an embarrassment of riches, really. The Golden Bears who are competing in ongoing sports AND the Golden Bears who are waiting to compete need your support. Our fan base is strong; our spirit, mighty. Yell so loudly your neighbors will want to join the party. In fact, yell so loudly our athletes will hear you in London! The University of California is truly a global community, and the perfect manifestation is at the Olympic Games!

Who is competing today, you ask? We have one Golden Bear, so you can focus all your positive thoughts and vocal strength on her: Alysia Johnson Montaño. The runner has dashed into the finals for the 800m at noon (PST), so click here for NBC's internet stream. Check here for your local listings of TV broadcasts. You can check out Montaño's (and others') profile by clicking on the CGB Calympian logo below, and remember to Tweet her your words of encouragement.
