Ao Gao (water polo - China)

Posted: July 26, 2012

2012-current Sun Devil Ao Gao (water polo - China) will be making her second appearance in the Olympics this year. Gao just finished her freshman campaign at ASU. Gao competed for her host nation at the 2008 Beijing Games and helped guide the team to a fifth-place finish. Gao’s performance was so exceptional that she was named as one of the All-Stars of the tournament. Despite only competing half of the opening season as a Sun Devil, Gao was a difference-maker in the pool.  Gao posted 21 goals in 19 appearances on the season, and her 1.11 goals per contest were 23rd in the MPSF on the year. Gao will be just the second current student-athlete behind Canadian diver Riley McCormick to represent ASU at the Olympics.
