updated by The University of Georgia as 48 and it is STILL WRONG. This is a more complete accurate list right here I did researching http://www.georgiadogs.com myself.
They can not count. But they got the names right. That is a START UGA. I guess when you take our money to be STUDENTS or write checks to coaches, you can get their names right anyway. I have been trying to tell them their names are WRONG for days now. They are still wrong. Use my list here not UGA.edu
And I demanded UGA write something that is CORRECT about who UGA sent to the Olympics. Finally today they have replied to me with this updated list.
I guess when I kept telling UGA that it SHOULD BE A SOURCE OF PRIDE and that MY LIST here is more complete than that provided by UGA to http://www.sec.com that they FINALLY capitulated and did a more accurate list of names anyway than previously done by UGA prior to the Olympics.
They probably updated it from their expense reports turned-in REPRESENTING The University of Georgia is my guess. I have been linking to UGA about this list to GET IT CORRECT at our own Official UGA WebPages and that which we TURNED-IN to http://www.secsports.com and one guy who plagiarized his list from http://www.secsports.com without URL Link provided to you of it.

In Summer Olympics 2012 London Olympics 29 current at the time or former University of Georgia students athletes competed in the 2012 London Summer Olympics and 3 UGA coaches also represented us in London for total of 32 Georgia Bulldogs’ students athletes or coaches representing UGA in London.
The University of Georgia UGA Bulldogs will be represented by 48 current or former students athletes coaches and staff in the Rio Games 2016 Summer Olympics.
GeorgiaDogs.com left off a bunch in their latest report to us prior to the Olympics but had URL Links to those they left-off which I found through searches of our Official UGA Athletic Department WebPages. http://www.georgiadogs.com/sports/c-swim/spec-rel/071816aaa.html
( http://www.bulldawgillustrated.com/uga-olympians-events/ ) plagiarized from SEC Sports.com without credit
Track and field at the Paralympics will start on Sept. 7.
I am PROUD of them representing The University of Georgia 100 % Bulldogs at Rio which is why I invest the time in my hobby of researching who it is who is representing us in the 2016 Summer Olympics. You leave-off whomever you want to leave-off some list you copied from somewhere else. Me ? I researched every name both on our own Official WebPages at UGA my alma mater AND other WebPages Official sites for the Olympics.
UGA has no one involved in men’s or women’s basketball in Rio nor any men’s or women’s football players. There is no baseball cricket or football as we know it in Rio. Moe Brian of St. Simons Island Georgia is on the women’s football soccer team but she played for Virginia not UGA.
That is the best I can do for you. I get 48. I cannot explain why I get a more complete list than everyone else.
I tried to find the list and could NOT as you can see find a complete list. So I wrote one myself.

“It’s nearly impossible to control your emotions here. When you have the Olympics on the line, it’s hard to stay calm. This is so cool. It’s an awesome feeling. I still can’t believe it. Honestly, I’m in shock right now.” University of Georgia’s Olivia Smoliga
