These athletes aren’t just committed to their sports, they are also dedicated students. When we found this article on Huffington Post College, we just knew we had to share.

DAVID BOUDIA – PURDUE UNIVERSITY

A 23-year old diver from Purdue, Boudia also competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He is expected to medal in London, so keep your eyes peeled!

MILES CHAMLEY-WATSON – PENN STATE UNIVERSITY

At Penn State, Chamley-Watson studies Business and Finance, but outside of school, this 22 year-old competes on the US Men’s Foil team in Fencing. He qualified for the third spot on the team and is ready to show off his skills across the pond.

SAM MIKULAK – UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN

At 19, Mikulak just finished his sophomore year at the University of Michigan. He will be the 1st from his university to compete on the USA Men’s Gymnastics team. During trials, he was forced to compete with a broken ankle, but that did not stop him from making the cut.

EMMA COBURN – UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT BOULDER

When it comes to Track & Field, 21 year old Emma Coburn is one to keep an eye on. This senior from the University of Colorado at Boulder is ranked the fourth fastest American EVER in steeplechase. We can’t wait to watch!
