Olympians with Arkansas Ties -- Part 2

Earlier this week, the local newspaper ran an article that listed Arkansans in the Olympics. I had about half of the list in my earlier post. I would like to wish all of these (and all the Olympic athletes) good luck. I hope they all have their personal bests. Here are the others on their list:

Veronica Campbell (photo credit) received her Bachelor of Science degree in 2006 from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, AR. She is a member of the USA Track and Field Team. She will compete in the 200 meters and as a member of the 4x100-meter relay. Her personal website is here.


Alistair Cragg (photo credit) is a former Arkansas Razorback distance runner. He is a native of South Africa but will compete for Ireland. His events are the 1,500-meter and 5,000-meter.
