ATHENS, Ga. --- Twenty-six athletes, one coach and one administrator with ties to the University of Georgia will be participating in the Olympics in London July 27-Aug. 12.

"We could not be prouder of these young men and women," UGA Director of Athletics Greg McGarity said.  "We'll all be watching the Olympics with a keener eye knowing that so many Bulldogs will be competing.  I think it's great that we have current, past and future student-athletes participating in the Olympics, and there's no question they will share a unique bond in London.  It shows how special the Georgia programs represented are in terms of their foundation, their tradition, and their success in their arenas."

Here are the sports involving current, former and/or future Georgia student-athletes:

Men's tennis (July 28-Aug. 5): John Isner, United States.

Swimming (July 28-Aug. 10): Andrew Gemmell, Kara Lynn Joyce, Allison Schmitt, Shannon Vreeland and Amanda Weir, United States; Troyden Prinsloo and Wendy Trott, South Africa; Yousef Alaskari, Kuwait; Matias Koski, Finland; Brittany MacLean, Canada; Sarah Poewe, Germany; and Ediz Yildirimer, Turkey.

Women's volleyball (July 28-Aug. 11): Elizabeth Reid, Great Britain.

Women's gymnastics (July 29-Aug. 7): Brittany Rogers, Canada.

Men's diving (Aug. 6-7); Chris Colwill and Assistant Coach Dan Laak, United States.
