John Naber is 55 and Louis Zamperini will be 95 in January, but they have two significant things in common: Both were Olympians and both were USC Trojans. And that is enough.

Kaitlin Sandeno, a bronze medalist at last summer's Olympic games, has signed to swim at USC next fall. Sandeno, a senior at El Toro High, chose USC over Arizona and Georgia, the three-time defending NCAA Division I champion. "It was just a gut feeling," said Sandeno, a six-time national champion.

Kaitlin Sandeno's face was beaming as she sat in front of a microphone in Long Beach Arena early Thursday evening, discussing her unexpected victory in the women's 400-meter freestyle final on the second day of the U.S. Olympic swimming trials.
