London 2012 Calympic Recap

She only won one medal, but at London, Natalie Coughlin cemented her place as one of the greatest Olympians of all time.

Wowee! What an intense two weeks. So much stuff going on, but now that it is all in the history books, we can take a step back and see how amazing it really was at London 2012. Cal did great as LEastCoastBears has outlined here.

But it is good to have a place to reference how all of the Calympians did. I went through and linked to all of the official results pages I could find for each Calympian. Some of them (like assistant coaches) did not seem to have any info at the London2012 website. But if people can find additional info for me, I can add it in. This info will be in our permanent London 2012 page, viewable here.

Congrats to all the Calympians for working hard and accomplishing their goals. Whether they won gold or not does not matter as they will always win Blue and Gold. They all represented Cal with class and flair in London. We are proud of them all. GO BEARS!
