Record 61 USC athletes headed to Tokyo Olympics

USC will send more olympians to Tokyo than any other U.S. university, with 61 Trojan athletes scheduled to compete.

USC has sent more athletes and has won more medals than any other American university, but this is the most Trojans ever at one Olympics. A USC athlete has won a gold medal in every Summer Olympics since 1912.

According to USC, the 61 Trojans are more than 162 of the 206 nations competing over the next few weeks.

USC athletes have earned 305 medals and 142 gold medals since 1912, which would be the 13th-most total medals and 11th-most gold medals if the university competed as its own country. Thirty two nations will be represented by USC’s 61 athletes.
