Orange County Olympians-Medal Update

Orange County has 47 Olympic Athletes at the 2008 Olympic Games. Congratulations are in order for all of those who qualified to compete on the worlds stage. I know it makes me proud to see our county represented.

Here is a list of the Orange County representatives who have medaled at the Olympics so far.

Aaron Piersol Men’s 100m Backstroke -Irvine (resident) Gold
Jason Lezak Men’s 4 x100m Freestyle Relay-Irvine (resident) Gold
Dara Torres Women’s 4x100m Freestyle Relay-Mission Viejo High (attended) Bronze

I will continue to update as the games go on.

Did you know we had that many representatives in the games? What are your favorite Olympic stories moments so far? Mine would have to be Jason Lezak’s final leg of the relay. Incredible. I got chills again thinking about it.
Please share.

    I’m digging the US Men’s #2 beach volleyball team. They are so far outperforming the #1 US Men’s team. Some great stuff to watch there.

    And, of course that relay was awesome.
