There will be two former Rams competing in the Summer Olympics in London: Quanitra Hollingsworth (’09), who will be suiting up for Turkey’s women’s basketball team, and Hayley Moorwood, who played women’s soccer for the Rams in 2005 and will be wearing the colors of her native New Zealand for the second time. She also competed for New Zealand in Beijing in 2008.

Opening ceremonies will be held on Friday, July 27, while the first competitions will take place on Wednesday, July 25. Unless they are going to play those games in a time machine, I believe that means they are actually before the opening ceremonies.

Here are the game times and TV listings for both Hollingsworth and Moorwood.
