Alumna Anna Li, an eight-time All-American and 2011 World Championship gold medalist while competing for UCLA, is an alternate for the U.S. women’s gymnastics team. This will be her first Olympics.
From two incoming Bruin freshmen who have yet to attend a class on campus to a veteran Bruin alumna who will be competing in her fifth Olympics, UCLA will be well-represented at the Games of the XXX Olympiad in London this summer.
