Ivies In London – Set for the 2012 Summer Games

The Ivy League has a far-reaching standard of success when it comes to the Olympic Games. As the world turns its attention to the 2012 Summer Games in London, the Ivy League has turned its attention to providing coverage of the games in order to highlight the performances of the League’s alums and student-athletes.

All told, Ivy League participants have combined to win 356 medals at the Summer Games Since the 1896 Athens Games, including 147 gold, 116 silver and 93 bronze. At the 2008 Summer Games, The Ivy League was represented by 42 athletes and took home 14 medals — five gold, seven silver and two bronze. The 356 medals at the Summer Games would rank 13th in the all-time standings for individual countries (complete country rankings).

The 2012 Olympic Games are scheduled to take place between July 25 and August 12. Action kicks off with soccer, which begins play on July 25 and 26. Then, the opening ceremonies will be held on Friday, July 27. The action hits full stride on Saturday, July 28.
