This is Grant's second Olympics competing in the modern pentathlon. In Athens in 2004, the Stratford native placed 22nd, and she is looking to improve her performance in Beijing. She's expected to finish in the top 12.
Connaughton is going to the Olympics for the first time, competing in the 200-metre dash and the 4x100-metre relay. The New Haven native set a new meet record in the 200 at a regional USA Track and Field event in Southern California in June. His time of 20.35 seconds was the 24th best time run in the 200 this year. He is heading for the Olympics despite some early training challenges.
