Emma Weyant captures silver in her Olympic debut

When Emma Weyant arrives on Grounds in a few weeks, she will have a new accessory to bring with her: an Olympic silver medal. The incoming first year was outstanding in her Olympic debut, finishing second in the 400-meter Individual Medley on Saturday night. Japan’s Yui Ohashi finished first with a time of 4:32.08. Weyant’s 4:32.76 was a new personal best for the Florida native in the event.

Emma Weyant is ON THE PODIUM.
