USC’s most decorated men’s tennis player, Steve Johnson, has added yet another piece of historic hardware to his trophy case. In his Olympic debut, Johnson made powerful runs through singles and doubles, and capped off his time in Rio by claiming a bronze medal in doubles alongside Team USA teammate Jack Sock.

A little later, Hungarian swimming sensation Katinka Hosszu claimed her fourth medal of the games, and USC’s sixth, with a silver in the 200-meter backstroke.

These are the 293rd and 294th medals overall by a Trojan in the history of the Olympic Games. USC has produced more Olympians, more overall medalists and more gold medalists than any other U.S. university.
