These famous Olympians from California have achieved some of the highest honors in sports history just by qualifying for the Olympics, as most athletes will never be chosen to represent their countries. These Golden State natives may not all have brought home a medal, but they certainly brought pride to their state and country.

Which Olympians were born in California? Legends like Florence Griffith Joyner - the fastest woman in the world - and Anne Kursinski were born in the state. More recent icons, like Shaun White, also call California home.
