176 St. Louis-area-born athletes have competed in the Olympic Games, according to a list at Sports-Reference.com, mostly in the Summer Games, and many in events that today's Olympians can no longer medal in like Tug-of-War or Golf. Just 11 of those 176 competed in the Winter Olympics before this year's Sochi games — and only one made the medal stand.
