With every Olympics it’s fun to root for Team USA. It’s even more fun when you know the specific athletes are from your home region. Need to know your NorCal Olympians? We got you!

We combed extensively through Team USA websites to build a pretty comprehensive list of former NorCal prep stars who find themselves on the world’s stage this summer. We’ve even listed a few NorCal Olympians competing for other countries.

We hope you find this list helpful as you fight off sleep to catch those late-night live events. Also, if we’re missing someone, please helps us add to the list by using the comments below or emailing our editor.
