There are dozens of athletes from across the SEC competing at the Summer Olympics in Rio, but you don’t see or hear many references to their college programs when they are interviewed. Texas A&M swimmer Cammile Adams was an exception Tuesday after qualifying for the women’s final in the 200m butterfly.
Adams completed her post-race interview with a shout-out of sorts to her school when she said, ‘Thanks and Gig-em.’

Adams finished second in her heat and fourth overall for Team USA and will go for a medal Wednesday evening in the final which is scheduled for 8:54 p.m. ET.
This Adams second Olympics. She finished fifth in the 200m butterfly at the 2012 games in London.
