From: Sportsman

Sports Funding Problems

The University of California, Berkeley, announced Friday that it was reinstating three of the five varsity teams it cut in September after a group of donors, alumni and fans raised as much as $13 million in private donations to restore the teams.

The university will keep women's lacrosse, women's gymnastics and men's rugby, which Cal had planned to demote to a newly created category called varsity club. Baseball and men's gymnastics will not return.
Californian Olympics?
Well, the golden state is well represented in London. Almost one-fourth of the entire USA contingent to the 2012 Olympic Games are from California, reports NBC. Our state, which lays claim to 128 Olympians this year, is also sending the complete badminton team, as well as 24 of the 26 water polo players.
