    1. Thanks for pointing out the accomplishment of Kedzie and the USA Quidditch team, Almond. Unfortunately though, Quidditch is not an official Olympic sport (yet!), and this article was about those who won medals in the official London 2012 Olympic Games.

      But we at BU Today love us some Quidditch! And when we found out that Kedzie would be heading to London as a member of USA’s Quidditch team to compete in the Quidditch Summer Games in Oxford, England (a few weeks before, but not part of the Olympics), we made sure to tell the story.

  1. This makes even more proud to call myself a fellow Terrier. Thank you for acknowledging our own BU Olympians. It really inspires a new generation. My friends and I made a video reenacting the London 2012 games as a tribute to the Fierce Five (Gabby, Kyla, McKayla, Jordyn, and Aly). If you would like to watch to support our countries performance in London, the video is at this link: http://goo.gl/GLgT6
