Olympians

Bulldogs in the Olympics

When nations come calling for their best athletes to participate in the Olympics, the Georgia Bulldogs are called often. Over 130 times Georgia's student-athletes and staff have represented their countries proudly.

One of the most decorated US Olympians, Teresa Edwards, has represented the United States six times, five as a competitor and once as an honorary member. In all, she won four gold medals and a bronze as apart of the women's basketball team.

Arguably, one of Georgia's most well known athletes competed in the Olympics but not in the sport that made him famous. Herschel Walker suited up for the US in the 1992 Winter Olympic Games as a member of the US bobsled team.

Swimmer Allison Schmitt took home six medals in her two Olympic trips. In the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, she took home an individual gold in the 200 freestyle and combined on the 4x100 medley relay (gold), 4x200 freestyle relay (gold), 4x100 freestyle relay (silver), and 4x100 freestyle relay (bronze). At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China, Schmitt won a bronze in the 4x200 meter freestyle relay.
