Note that these Olymians lists include athletes who have competed at 4-year schools. A slightly larger master list – featuring well over 1,000 individuals – also includes Olympic alternates, head coaches, full-time assistant coaches and a couple key support staff. Some individuals may be included on multiple schools' lists (transfers, coaches who previously were college athletes, etc.). The "alternate" designation can be hard to clarify for certain sports/countries, so there likely will be some slight adjustments to the competitors and master list as the alternates are clarified. Also note that some current/former graduate students are included (but not "incoming grad students") while current volunteer and assistant coaches or any former assistant coaches were not included (unless they also were a former student-athlete at that school). Incoming freshmen, as formal recruits/signees, are included. In the rare instances when athletes turned professional before competing for a college program, they still are included on this list if they were enrolled as a full-time student, pursued a formal degree program, graduated, etc.
