Add Toby Stevenson to the Stanford Olympian list - he is in London as Katerina Stefanidi's coach.

Also, Steve Solomon of Australia will be competing in the 400m in track and field. He will be a Stanford freshman this fall.

Mitt spent a year at Stanford, before he went off to do his missionary work, didn't he?

No one seems to be in a hurry to claim him, after his stellar day yesterday.

Good luck, Stanford Olympians!

I'll claim Mitt! :-)

And, yes, good luck to Stanford athletes and the rest of Team USA!!!
