The Games of the XXXI Olympiad start on Friday in Rio de Janeiro and continuing a tradition dating back to the 1948 Olympics in London, Villanova will be represented.

Three Wildcats will be representing two countries in Brazil as Kyle Lowry will be playing for the United States in Men's Basketball and Patrick Tiernan and Sam McEntee will be representing Australia in the Men's 5,000m Run.

Monique Morgan ('07) was originally named by Jamaica to participate in the Women's 100m Hurdles, but after weeks of paperwork was determined to be a "a non-traveling alternate".
