With the 2020 Tokyo Games officially underway, Daily Bruin Sports looks at the 43 Bruin athletes – and handful of coaches – who are currently in Japan representing the blue and gold of UCLA, along with their countries’ colors.
Ever since it won the NCAA’s first softball championship back in 1982, no program has ever had more titles to its name than UCLA.
But after UCLA softball’s Women’s College World Series exit earlier this month marked the end of an adversity-filled two-year quest to defend its latest national championship, coach Kelly Inouye-Perez emphasized that the “Bruin bubble” is about far more than just victories on the field.

Coral Smith, Daily Bruin senior staff
After her phenomenal 2019 season, one might have thought we had witnessed the greatest year of Rachel Garcia’s UCLA career.
After a delayed start because of the COVID-19 pandemic, UCLA Athletics had quite a year full of big moments. Ranging from adding national championship No. 119 to its trophy case to a revival of a long-storied program to a Michelle Obama tweet, Daily Bruin Sports takes a look at the very best moments of the 2020-2021 year in UCLA sports.
OKLAHOMA CITY – The difference in the game was the offenses, and on Friday night, the Bruins’ did not show up.
No. 2 seed UCLA softball (47-6, 19-2 Pac-12) found itself on the wrong end of a perfect game from No.
