Usually at this point in the Olympics, we’ve already heard USC pull out its standard Olympics saying, “if USC were a country, it would rank — in medals won.”
But it’s been a light medal haul so far, that will pick up with track and field underway especially with Michael Norman (400 meters) and Dalilah Muhammad (400 hurdles) coming up. Kendall Ellis won a bronze medal in the Mixed 4×400 relay.
Andre De Grasse finished third in the 100 meters today, which is a bit of a disappointment given an unknown (Lamont Marcell Jacobs) won and others were either disqualified or ran poorly. Isaiah Jewett was tripped and fell in the 800 meters.
But forget all that because the Scottish Daily Mail has a feature on USC sprinter Nicole Yeargin and says she went to the “prestigious University of South California.”
