A good portion of the California Golden Bears contingent was not present at the 2016 Opening Ceremony—most of the Cal athletes in Rio are swimmers and have to keep their regimens going for the next couple of days.
But some prominent Bears were in attendance. Let’s take a look at some of their best moments. Thanks to Ruey Yen for compiling these moments.

Lily Zhang is competing in women’s table tennis and is looking to make a deep run.
