Celebrating 60 Years of Coogs at the Olympics
You know successful athletes regularly come out of the UH Powerhouse, but did you know that Cougars first competed in the Olympic games exactly 60 years ago? Going back to the first Cougar Olympians at the 1956 games in Melbourne, Australia, we’re showcasing one UH Olympian from each decade. It wasn’t always an easy road for these world-class athletes, and no two Olympic experiences are alike — but what they do have in common is an extraordinary drive and determination that makes us proud to call them Cougars.
