Seven Wildcats are headed to the Olympics in track and field and swimming

@KentuckyTrack

Football and basketball dominate the headlines when it comes to Kentucky sports, but it’s worth mentioning that six Wildcats qualified for the Olympics in track and field. Over the weekend, Andrew Evans made Team USA with a third-place showing in the Men’s Discus; Leah Nugent will represent Jamaica in the 400m hurdles; former Cat and current UK volunteer assistant coach Rondel Sorrillo and Mikel Thomas will represent Trinidad and Tobago; freshman Camacho-Quinn made the Puerto Rican national team for the 100m hurdles; and Luis Orta will represent Venezuela in the marathon.

Someone give Edrick Floreal a raise, please.

@UKSwimDive

The U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials ended last week with no Wildcats advancing, but this morning, UK announced that senior Sean Gunn will represent Zimbabwe in the 100m free.

Congrats to all on this huge accomplishment. Representing your country in the Olympics has to be one of the coolest experiences ever.

    With what’s happening in Brazil, especially around Rio, I would hesitate to make that trip
