Tristate Olympians



There will be 12 athletes with Tristate connections competing in the Olympics. They are rowers Bryan Volpenhein, Greg Ruckman, Pat Todd and Kelly Salchow; boxers Ron Siler Jr. and Rau'Shee Warren; swimmers Nate Dusing and Dan Ketchum; synchronized swimmer Becky Jasontek; gymnast Mohini Bhardwaj; shooter Jason Parker; and soccer player Heather Mitts.

A 13th local athlete, Jason McKittrick, will be the alternate in archery.

Two athletes with looser Cincinnati connections also will compete in Athens: swimmer Gary Hall Jr. - born here when his father, Gary Hall Sr., was attending medical school at the University of Cincinnati - and former UC track standout Laura Valldeperas, who will represent El Salvador.
