J. Horton

Six former or current OU athletes qualified for the U.S. Olympic team on Sunday.

Five made the team in men’s gymnastics, with former Sooner Jonathan Horton and OU senior-to-be Jake Dalton making the five-man team for the London Games.

Three other former Sooners will be alternates: Steven Legendre, Chris Brooks and Alex Naddour.

Horton will be making his second straight Olympic appearance, while this will be Dalton’s first.

In track and field, OU javelin thrower Brittany Borman won the Olympic Trials with a throw of 201 feet, 9 inches.

The two-time NCAA champion will be making her first Olympic appearance and joins shot putter Tia Brooks as Sooner track and field athletes to be going to London.

The Summer Olympics begin July 27 on KFOR.
