Oral Roberts University alumnus Dominique Allen will be playing for gold this summer at the London Olympics.

Allen will represent her native country Great Britain in the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Allen is the first member of the ORU women's basketball program to compete at the Olympic Games.

"We are very proud of Dom and excited that she has the opportunity to represent both Great Britain and the ORU women's basketball program this summer in London," said ORU Head Coach Misti Cussen. "Our program is also very proud of Georgia, who had a fantastic career at ORU and will no doubt be a fixture on the international basketball circuit for years to come."

Allen played in 107 games over her four-year career at ORU. The Birmingham, England native averaged 3.4 points and 3.7 rebounds per game, and she participated on two Summit League regular season championship squads.

Fellow 2012 alumnus Georgia Jones was a member of Great Britain's Olympic training camp, but did not make the final cut.

Great Britain's opener at the Olympic Games is scheduled for July 28, when the team faces Australia.
