TSU: An Olympic Tradition

To soar to victory on eagle-wings.... to challenge the win for Olympic win with a spirit as tenacious as the legs that carry an athlete across the finish line: These visions have characterized the Tennessee State University's quest for Olympic medals for more than four decades. Indeed TSU is an Olympic tradition: such names as Wilma Rudolph,  Ralph Boston, Tina Tyus-Shaw, Edith McGuire-Duvall and Chandra Cheeseborough are synonymous with "Champion.”
