There will be 306 gold medals awarded at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, and this time around, a Wildcat has a real shot to claim one. Cole Paxton takes an in-depth look at Jordan Wilmovsky, a world-champion distance swimmer out of Northwestern who will be going for gold this summer.

In addition, a couple of teams are readying themselves for a shot at NCAA glory…

  • Joe Wilkinson sets the stage for the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships, where the peaking Cats are a real contender for a national title.
  • Melissa Haniff previews softball’s upcoming first round NCAA Tournament matchup with Oklahoma State, which NU secured after a strong stretch to close the season at .500.

And today’s back page, featuring Wilmovsky:
