With the Olympics on TV day and night, it’s hard not to think about sports. In fact, every two years, I’m reminded of some obscure sports and games that most people don’t normally discuss on a daily basis.

With these numbers, we’re sure to have alumni at Olympic games for many years to come.

And while we’re at it, let’s not forget to congratulate Penn alumna, Susan Francia, C’04, G’04, who just received her second the gold in the rowing competition at the London 2012 Olympics! Read  more about it here.
