Seminoles bring 25 athletes and coaches to Olympics

Florida State University was well represented at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Athletes and coaches took their talents from Tallahassee to the international level this past July. 

The Tokyo Olympics were far from normal. Not only were they pushed back a year due to COVID-19, but the teams experienced many new norms.

Athletes had guidelines to follow to prevent a COVID-19 outbreak and performed in empty arenas. Nonetheless, the athletes and coaches persevered through the changes and gave fans the entertainment they wanted.

FSU sent more athletes and coaches than ever before to compete at one of the biggest stages in sports, as a total of 25 attended the games. Two of the athletes are current students and 23 are alumni. The sports included swimming, diving, women’s and men’s basketball, beach volleyball, track and field, soccer, softball and women’s golf.
