Where US Olympic Athletes Call Home

I do love the Olympics. The pageantry. The competition. The Cinderella stories. The patriotic pride. And of course I’ll be humming John Williams’ brass-tastic Olympic Theme in my head for the next few weeks. Whether you like basketball, track & field, swimming or gymnastics, it’s hard not to get psyched up for Team USA.

Yes, the 2012 Olympic Games are finally upon us, and 530 athletes will represent Team USA in London with the opening ceremony on tap for tonight.  While these skilled men and women compete overseas we wanted to take a look at just where theese athletes call home.

A whopping 128 athletes  call California home, which is roughly a quarter of the entire U.S. Olympic team! In fact, 24 of the 26 U.S. water polo players hail from the Golden State. New York and Pennsylvania tie for silver, with both states sending 35 athletes, while Texas takes the bronze with 33 athletes.
