Congrats Lauren! (Photo by Rich Lam/Getty Images)

Whatever happens with David Boudia in the 10-meter individual diving event, Purdue will now have at least TWO medalists from this year's Olympics. Former women's soccer player Lauren Sesselmann was able to help team Canada overcome Monday's fishy officiating against the United States and help the Canadians win the Bronze medal match over France 1-0. The French had multiple chances for a goal, but Canada scored deep into stoppage time to basically steal the Bronze medal, a first for their country in soccer. Sesselmann played in all six games in the tournament as a defender, so congratulations are in order for her becoming the second Boilermaker in these games to earn a medal.
