Twins Ross and Grant James Headline Badgers at the Games

Ross and Grant James preparing for the Olympics
Twins Ross and Grant James headline the Badgers going to the Olympics this year.  Wisconsin is sending 9 Athletes to the games this year.
.
As compared to the UCLA Bruins, Wisconsin tends to send more to the WINTER games than the Summer games.  For example, they had lots of members on the Men's and Women's Hockey teams last year - UCLA, not so much.
