Kristin Armstrong

University of Idaho alumna Kristin Armstrong won her second consecutive gold medal in the Olympic time trial competition earlier this year in London. She also took 35th place in the road race July 29. Armstrong also captured the gold in the time trial at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

The Boise cyclist retired in 2009, but made a comeback after the birth of her son, Lucas, in 2010 and a broken collarbone sustained in a fall during qualifying competitions in May. She also crashed during the road race in London earlier in the Olympic Games, injuring her elbow.

"To come back as a mom and win a gold medal a second time is a dream come true," Armstrong said after the race, according to USA Cycling.

Armstrong is a 1995 College of Education graduate, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in sports physiology. Armstrong’s stellar list of career achievements include a 2005 bronze world championship, 2006 world time trial championship, 2007 silver world championships and 2009 world time trial championship.

She credits U-Idaho for helping her learn how to set strict goals for herself and being able to achieve them.

Armstrong is one example of the legacy of U-Idaho alumni who are inspiring the futures of the next generation of Vandals and beyond.
