2012 London Olympics: Six Athletes Representing The Mountain West

The 2012 London Olympics get underway Friday with the Opening Ceremonies and there are six athletes who either went to a Mountain West school or in the case of track runner Jenny Simpson is a current coach with Air Force. Look for some previews of each athlete prior to their event. I added in Marti Malloy who went to San Jose State, because they are essentially a Mountain West school.
