The Buffaloes Are Headed To London

That's right, Emma Coburn and Shalaya Kipp will represent the United States of America at the 2012 Summer Olympics next month in London. Awesome, awesome achievement ladies. Couldn't be more proud to root on two amazing representatives of the University of Colorado.

Coburn and Kipp join two former Buffs who have already qualified for the London Olympics for the USA, Kara Goucher in the women's marathon and Dathan Ritzenhein in the men's 10,000-meter run.

For the second straight time, the University of Colorado will have a student-athlete representing the United States at the Summer Olympics. However this time, there will be two Buffs going to the games.

Seniors Emma Coburn and Shalaya Kipp punched their tickets to London on Friday night with a first and third place finish in the women's 3,000 meters steeplechase final at the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials.
