Women's Volleyball • Foluke Akinradewo • USA

Foluke Akinradewo '09 is a 6-foot-3 middle blocker playing in her second Olympics for the U.S., having won a silver in London. Akinradewo was born in Canada of Nigerian parents and grew up in Fresno and Plantation, Florida. She never played club volleyball as a youth, starring in volleyball, basketball, and track and field in high school. Her athletic ability is almost unparalleled. At Stanford, the human biology major was a two-time Pac-10 Player of the Year, Honda Award winner and AVCA Player of the Year. She led the Cardinal to three NCAA finals while becoming a four-time AVCA All-American.


114070

Men's Water Polo • Tony Azevedo • USA

How important is Tony Azevedo '04 to the U.S. team? His nickname is "The Savior." Azevedo is playing in his fifth Olympics – winning silver in 2008 -- and second as captain. Azevedo was born in Rio to a father who played on the Brazilian national team, and an American mother, and moved to Long Beach at one month old. At age 4, he severed his trachea and esophagus in a fall and his heart stopped for four minutes before doctors revived him. He majored in international relations at Stanford and won two NCAA titles while scoring 332 career goals, a school record that would stand until 2015.


114073

Men's Water Polo • Bret Bonanni • USA

Bret Bonnani '16 is competing in his first Olympics after completing the most prolific scoring career in Stanford history. On Oct. 31, 2015, Bonanni scored six goals against Long Beach State to break Tony Azevedo's all-time career standard of 332, and finished with 360. Bonanni owns three of the highest-scoring seasons in school history, including a 97-goal 2013 campaign. Bonanni scored at least one goal in 51 consecutive games from 2013-15 and had multiple goals in 17 of his final 21 collegiate contests. Bonanni grew up in Huntington Beach before being named an All-American four times, with three first-team honors.


114071

Men's Water Polo • Alex Bowen • USA

With Alex Bowen '15, the U.S. team includes the top three career scorers in Stanford history. Bowen is a 6-foot-5, 220-pound attacker who scored 253 goals at Stanford, behind only Bret Bonanni and Tony Azevedo. At Santana High in Santee, Bowen scored an incredible 547 goals to set a San Diego County record. Growing up, he was inspired by the late baseball Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn. At Stanford, he earned four first-team All-America honors and led the Cardinal to the 2014 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation title. Still only 22, this is his first Olympic Games.


114072

Men's Swimming • Geoffrey Cheah • Hong Kong

Geoffrey Cheah '13 will swim the 50-meter freestyle for Hong Kong. Cheah may be best known at Stanford for winning the 2010 dual against Cal. Stanford's 'B' team needed third in the final event – the 400-yard freestyle relay – to win the meet. On the anchor, Cheah pulled away from Cal in the final 50 to give Stanford the victory. Cheah holds 10 Hong Kong records, becoming the first to break 50 seconds in the 100-meter free. As a child, Cheah had asthma so severe he required a machine to help him breathe at night. He began swimming to alleviate his asthma. 


114008

Women's Diving • Kassidy Cook • USA

Kassidy Cook '17 completed a remarkable comeback to win the U.S. Trials in 3-meter springboard diving and qualify for her first Olympic team. Cook is a two-time All-American at Stanford and will be a junior after deferring a year to prepare for Rio. She missed a 2012 Olympic qualifying spot by 0.42 points in 3-meter synchronized and shortly after tore the labrum in her shoulder, triggering an injury cycle that knocked her out of competition for two years. Cook is a native of The Woodlands, Texas, and the fifth of six siblings whose first names all begin with 'K.'


114074

Equestrian • Lucy Davis • USA

Lucy Davis '15 will compete in individual and team jumping events in Rio. Her grandfather was a jockey agent and her mother grew up around horses, which helped create her interest. Davis, a Los Angeles native now based in Germany, majored in architecture at Stanford while also riding professionally since her freshman year. She rode horses at the Red Barn every morning before classes. Davis began competing on her horse, Barron, in 2012 and broke on to the world stage with a victory at the 2013 Grand Prix in Lausanne. She calls Barron, named after Lucy's grandfather, a 'once-in-a-lifetime horse.'  


114081

Women's Swimming • Maya DiRado • USA

Maya DiRado '14 swims in the 200-meter backstroke, 200 individual medley, and her specialty, the 400 IM, in Rio. The Santa Rosa native and 21-time Stanford All-American is competing in her first Olympics, and last. DiRado, a management science and engineering graduate, will retire and begin a career as a business analyst. DiRado considered giving up swimming after graduation, but head coach Greg Meehan convinced her to give the Olympics a shot. DiRado won all three events at the Olympic Trials and now is considered a medal favorite. DiRado's parents met at Stanford and husband Rob Andrews swam for the Cardinal. 


113885

Women's Track & Field • Justine Fedronic • France

Justine Fedronic '13 runs the 800 meters for France. At Stanford, Fedronic was third at the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships and anchored the Cardinal distance medley relay to second at the 2014 NCAA Indoors. The multicultural Fedronic was born in Germany to a French-Caribbean father and Hungarian mother and lived in France until age 6 when the family moved to Belmont, just up the Peninsula from Stanford. Fedronic, a French citizen living in Seattle, was selected for Rio by breaking the French Olympic standard of 2:00.00 at the American Track League event in Atlanta, and finishing second at the French championships.  


114087

Women's Water Polo • Makenzie Fischer • USA

Makenzie Fischer '20 is an incoming freshman from Laguna Beach playing in her first Olympics. Makenzie, 19, and sister Aria, 17, are among the youngest on the U.S. team, but Makenzie already has proven to be impactful, helping the U.S. to the 2015 world championship title in Russia. Though she can score, Fischer will take on a more defensive role in Rio to fully take advantage of her size and explosiveness. Fischer's father, Erich, was a two-time All-America at Stanford and is No. 7 on the school all-time goals list, with 197, and uncle, Martin, played goalie for the Cardinal. 


114086

Women's Rugby • Vix Folayan • USA

Vix Folayan '06 plays wing and flanker on the U.S. Sevens rugby team. This is women's rugby's Olympic debut and the first Olympic rugby at all since 1924. In high school in Kissimmee, Florida, Folayan played seven sports, including one season as a football running back. She found her calling at Stanford's Admit Weekend when she happened upon a women's rugby practice and was asked to join in, and loved the combination of speed and contact. She competed on the track team as a freshman and joined the rugby team as a junior, leading it to back-to-back national championships.


114085

Men's Rowing • Austin Hack • USA

Austin Hack '14 competes in the men's eights at his first Olympics. Hack, from Old Lyme, Connecticut, was introduced to competitive rowing by Scott Belford, whom Hack describes as the most influential person in his sporting career. That led to a career at Stanford, where Hack was a two-time Pac-12 Rower of the Year. Hack embodied the scholar-athlete ideal, scoring 2,200 out of 2,400 on the SAT and earning first chair of the wind ensemble's percussion section. At Stanford, he earned the Pac-12 Scholar Athlete of the Year while majoring in political science and minoring in modern languages.


114108

Men's Water Polo • Ben Hallock • USA

Ben Hallock '20 is an incoming freshman from Studio City who is competing in his first Olympics. Hallock, 18, is the youngest member of the 13-player U.S. water polo team. Hallock listed his favorite quote as: "Age Is No Barrier. It's A Limitation You Put On Your Mind." Hallock loves the physicality of the sport, perhaps stemming from his father's football background. Hallock is not only regarded as the nation's top recruit, but Stanford coach John Vargas said of the 6-foot-6 Hallock: "Players like Ben come around once every 10 to 15 years. 


114005

Men's Diving • Kristian Ipsen • USA

Kristian Ipsen '15 dives in his second Olympic Games, this time in the 3-meter springboard. At the 2012 London Games, 19-year-old Ipsen and partner Troy Dumais captured bronze in the 3-meter synchronized event. Ipsen grew up in the East Bay town of Clayton and worked at his father's pizza parlor before coming to Stanford and winning three NCAA championships – becoming the first Stanford winner in 82 years. Ipsen, who also captured five Pac-12 titles, gave up the sport for six months in 2014, but now is back at his best. He won the U.S. Olympic Trials for his fourth U.S. championship.


114109

Men's Gymnastics • David Jessen • Czech Republic

David Jessen '20 is an incoming freshman who will compete in the men's gymnastics all-around for the Czech Republic. Jessen, 19, is the son of 1988 Czechoslovakian Olympic gymnast Hana Ricna and an American gymnastics coach, Lorin Jessen. David was born in Brno, Czech Republic, and is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Czech Republic. Jessen spent five years with the U.S. junior national team before choosing to represent the Czech Republic at the 2015 World Championships. Jessen is based in South Florida and coached by Vasili Vinogradov, a former USSR national team gymnast. 


114006

Women's Basketball • Sebnem Kimyacioglu • Turkey

Former Cardinal sharpshooter Sebnem Kimyacioglu '05 plays basketball for Turkey. The daughter of Turkish immigrants, Kimyacioglu grew up near Stanford in Mountain View, starred at Pinewood School, and helped the Cardinal to four Pac-10 regular-season titles and a 118-18 record. She totaled 205 three-point baskets – the third-most in school history at the time of her graduation – and started 65 games as a 5-foot-11 wing. Kimyacioglu played three professional seasons in Turkey before retiring to earn a law degree. After three years away from the game, she returned to Turkish pro ball, won the Euroleague title and was named to her first Olympic team.


114111

Women's Fencing • Vivian Kong • Hong Kong

Stanford fencer Vivian Kong Man-wei '17 is competing in the women's epee for Hong Kong. Heading into Rio, no fencer from Hong Kong had ever won an Olympic bout, but Kong was aiming to make history for the former British colony. Kong was a two-time Asian junior champion and won bronze in the World Cup Series in Italy in May. At Stanford, Kong is an international studies major and has gone 143-24, with two first-team All-America honors. In 2014, she became the second from Stanford to win an NCAA epee title, beating teammate Francesca Bassa in the final.


114114

Synchronized Swimming • Mariya Koroleva • USA

Mariya Koroleva '12 competes in the women's duet. This is her second Olympics, but first with partner Anita Alvarez. They comprise the entire U.S. synchro team in Rio. Koroleva was born in Russia and moved to the U.S. at 9, settling in the East Bay, in Concord. Speaking no English, Koroleva had a hard time assimilating. Her parents, looking for an after-school activity to keep Mariya busy, found a flyer for a free synchronized swimming class. She gave it a try and has been hooked ever since. Koroleva won two collegiate team titles and a duet championship while at Stanford.


114113

Women's Swimming • Katie Ledecky • USA

Katie Ledecky '20 is an incoming freshman and one of the most dominant athletes in the world. She holds three world records – in the 400-meter freestyle, 800 free, and 1,500 free. She will swim the 200, 400, and 800 free events in Rio. Making her Olympic debut in 2012 at 15, Ledecky won gold in the 800 free by four seconds and dominated the distance events over the next few years, becoming the first to win the 200, 400, 800 and 1,500 free titles at a single world championship, in 2015. The feat became known as the "Ledecky Slam."


114115

Women's Sailing • Marion Lepert • USA

Marion Lepert '17 competes in the RS:X women's windsurfing division. Lepert was born in France and grew up in Belmont, and attended Castilleja School in Palo Alto. She was introduced to windsurfing at age 8 by her father, Arnaud, in the Foster City Lagoon. By 11, she regularly windsurfed alongside veterans in the rough wind and currents near the Golden Gate Bridge. Lepert, a mechanical engineering major, competed on sailing team at Stanford before taking a year off to train for Rio. Her training consisted of mornings windsurfing on the San Francisco Bay and afternoons running on area trails.

A three-time Olympic beach gold medalist with Misty May-Treanor, Walsh Jennings is seeking to win her first gold with new partner April Ross. Now 38 and a mother of three, Walsh Jennings is competing in her fifth Olympics, including as a member of the 2000 U.S. indoor team. Kerri Walsh starred at San Jose's Archbishop Mitty High School before helping Stanford to four Pac-10 titles, three final fours and two NCAA championships. She was the second player in collegiate history to win four first-team All-America honors.


Stanford's contingent of 39 athletes wrapped up action at the 2016 Summer Olympics, putting the finishing touches on the most successful competition in school history.

Olympians with Cardinal ties produced a school-record 27 medals (14 gold, 7 silver, 6 bronze), surpassing the previous best of 25 (8 gold, 13 silver, 4 bronze) from the 2008 Beijing Games. Stanford's 14 gold medals trail only the 18 won during the 1996 Atlanta Games. It's also the fourth time Stanford affiliates brought home at least 20 medals, having collected 21 in both the 1996 Atlanta Games and 1924 Paris Games.

Among the 2016 contingent: 25 former, seven current and five incoming student-athletes, along with two former club sports competitors, in addition to five other delegates. Stanford's Olympians hailed from 10 countries and spanned 17 varsity sports.

In addition to Stanford's 29 Team USA selections representing the most of any NCAA institution, the Cardinal's 27 overall medals served as the Pac-12 benchmark, with rivals California (21) and USC (21) rounding out the top three.

Individual performances – both dominant and historic – headlined the 2016 Rio Games. Among the notables:

  • Of Stanford's 27 medals, 14 came from women's swimming, including Katie Ledecky '20 claiming five medals to establish a Stanford record for a single Olympics.

  • Simone Manuel '18 made history as the first African-American woman to capture an individual medal in swimming when she won gold in the 100-meter freestyle. Meanwhile, Alex Massialas '16 earned the first medal by an American fencer in 32 years by winning a silver in foil.

  • Kerri Walsh Jennings '00, who celebrated her 38th birthday midway through the Games, secured her fourth Olympic beach volleyball medal, winning bronze after suffering her first career loss at the Games following three consecutive golds.
     
  • Makenzie Fischer '20, Kiley Neushul '15, Melissa Seidemann '13 and Maggie Steffens '17 anchored women's water polo, as the United States became the first nation to secure back-to-back gold medals. The foursome accounted for more than 50 percent of Team USA's overall scoring.
