Marketing Female Athletes will be spotlighting athletes in different sports leading up to the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Some of them you may have already heard about but there definitely will be many whom you’ve never heard about until here and now!
For week 8, we are focusing on a sport and specialty that the United States has never medaled in. 28-year old Maine native Julia Clukey, who recently came in ninth at the World Championships, hopes to change that.
Julia has been competing in singles luge since 2002, is a 2010 Olympian and a three-time World Cup competitor. Not content with only representing the U.S. in international competitions, Julia also gives back through her Julia Clukey Camp for Girls. The camp is designed for girls ages 8-12 as a place to develop self-confidence and a healthy lifestyle. She’s a role model on and off the course!
