A pair of Gator letterwinners captured Olympic medals on the last day any are scheduled to compete at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

 

Novlene Williams-Mills (Jamaica) and Jeff Demps (U.S.A.) took home hardware as members of their respective countryís relay squads at Olympic Stadium.

 

Gator letterwinners combined to earn 18 Olympic medals, the second-most ever by a Gator contingent during a single Olympiad, just shy of the all-time mark set by the 24 Gators who compiled 20 medals competing at the 1984 Los Angeles Games, winning 13 gold, 5 silver and 2 bronze all in the sport of swimming.

 

In London, a Gator-record 35 letterwinners combined to win six gold medals, six silver and six bronze in the sports of soccer, swimming, track & field and tennis.
