There's no shortage of Team USA athletes to pledge our allegiance to, but we wanted to know who from Arizona will represent the stars and stripes in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London starting July 27.
To be clear, we're claiming everybody we can, from former state university alumni to those who currently train at local clubs.
Congratulations to Team USA.
