A passion of the KU Memorial Union

Sasha Kaun, Olympian

Former KU basketball center Sasha Kaun, member of the 2008 national champion team, is a member of the Russian national team and will be competing in the 2012 Summer Olympics. Kaun will be the first Kansas Jayhawk to participate in basketball in the Olympics since Danny Manning's participation in 1988, a team that finished with a bronze medal.  That team was coached by John Thompson and also featured Kansas State Wildcat Mitch Richmond and superstar David Robinson.
