    I know this is early, but wondering if anyone has found a site that shows Buffs that are likely to compete, their sports, etc?

    I haven't seen anything yet, but as the Olympic qualifying events take place, there will undoubtedly be some coverage.

    I'm expecting Jenny Simpson (nee Barrenger) and Emma Coburn to be getting attention in the steeplechase. Some of Wettmore's other former runners probably will be in the mix.

    I have no info on other Olympic sports.

    Results of Olympic Marathon trial today. Some former Buffs turned in respectable results. Top 3 men and top 3 women qualify.

    Kara Goucher took 3rd finishing in 2:26:06. Ticket punched. CONGRATS!


    Dathan Ritzenhein took 4th in 2:09:55. So close.

    Keynon Neuman took 72nd in 2:22:33
