Olympian with Ky. ties

On Aug. 5, the Herald-Leader posted a video and article, “Athletes with Kentucky Ties in the Rio Olympics,” which included 18 athletes and one coach with various ties to the commonwealth, such as being a native, having played college athletics here, or having graduated from a Kentucky high school.

At least one more athlete was overlooked: women’s rugby sevens player Jessica Javalet, who was a three-time All-American and Academic All-American field hockey player for the University of Louisville, according to her biography with USA Rugby.
