matt baranoskiThe United States’ Olympic Track Cycling team will feature a soon-to-be Penn State alumnus in Rio de Janeiro. Matt Baranoski, a student who will receive his degree in electrical engineering this year, was named to the team on Friday afternoon.

Despite being only 22, Baranoski has an impressive resume. Baranoski competed at the USA Cycling Collegiate Track National Championships in 2011, 2012, and 2013, competing in eight races over all three years and winning seven of them. (The one he didn’t win? He came in second.)

On the national stage, the Schreyer Honors College student has several titles from the USA Cycling Elite Track National Championships. Baranoski first competed at nationals in 2010, where he became the youngest national champion in U.S. history at the age of 17 when he won keirin event. He’s since gone on to win a number of titles at other Elite Track National Championships.

If you’d like to see all of Baranoski’s achievements on the track, here is the list of his race results. Just be warned: There are literally hundreds of entries dating back to 2004.
