Two former Kentucky high school or college athletes competed in day four of the London Olympics. You can see a rundown of those performances below:

 

Swimming

 

Former Saint Xavier High School swimmer Clark Burckle qualified sixth for the men’s 200-meter breaststroke final for Team USA.

 

Burckle finished second in his semifinal heat in 2:09.11. He also finished second in his qualifying heat in the morning in 2:09.55. Burckle joins American teammate Scott Weltz in the final, where he will start in lane seven.

 

The 200-meter breaststroke final is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. EST on Wednesday.

 

Basketball

 

Former UK basketball player Anthony Davis scored 12 points in Team USA’s 110-63 win versus Tunisia. Davis added three rebounds and one block in just less than 14 minutes of action.

 

Davis was a perfect 5-5 from the field and 2-2 from the free-throw line. The U.S. returns to action Thursday against Nigeria.
