Eight UT alumni brought home a total of ten medals, including five golds, from the 2012 Olympic Games in London. The 2012 medal tally for former UT athletes surpasses the school’s previous record of eight medals, which was set at the 1996 Games in Atlanta. UT’s total medal count places the university seventh among all schools and second among SEC programs for this year’s Olympics.
