Cardinal athletes continue to rock the Olympics in Rio.

LUCY DAVIS, who graduated in 2015, collected Stanford’s 18th overall medal of the 2016 Olympic Games on Wednesday, Aug. 17, bringing home silver as a member of USA’s Show Jumping team.

Next up for Davis is Friday’s individual jumping final.

Davis majored in architecture at Stanford while also riding professionally since her freshman year. She rode horses at the Stanford RED BARN EQUESTRIAN CENTER every morning before classes. Davis began competing on her horse, Barron, in 2012 and broke on to the world stage with a victory at the 2013 Grand Prix in Lausanne.

Davis’ photograph above was taken by Stanford alumnus and former Stanford Equestrian team president MARCO PERLMAN, who is in Brazil attending the Olympics.
