With the London Olympics a little over a week away, athletes and fans are gearing up for the most prestigious sporting event in the world. This time around, a number of Asian Americans will be representing the United States in various events.
This Olympics, the U.S. has two Asian American swimmers hitting the pool. Natalie Coughlin (she’s a quarter Filipina) and Nathan Adrian (he’s half Chinese) will be competing in London.
The entire U.S. Olympic table tennis team consists of Asian Americans. On the women’s team are Ariel Hsing, Lily Zhang, and Erica Wu, whom we had a chance to interview . All of these girls are teenagers, balancing school and training. Timothy Wang is the sole member of the U.S. men’s team.
Likewise, all the members of the U.S. Olympic badminton team are Asian. Rena Wang, who we interviewed  about the upcoming Games, will be representing the U.S. in womens’ singles. Olympic veteran Howard Bach will be heading to his third Games with mens’ doubles partner Tony Gunawan, who won the gold medal for Indonesia at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney with doubles partner Candra Wijaya. Pick up our latest print issue of Audrey to read our exclusive interview with Howard Bach!
