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 the past thirty-two weeks we have featured prospective U.S. Olympic Team members who will represent us in Sochi. Since many of the Trials are over, we thought you might like to know who has made the team to date. Some Trials are still continuing so this is not a complete list. We will have an update next week. We are proud to report that more than half of those we selected have made the team! Here are your current champions followed by the week they were featured:
Ashley Wagner, Figure Skating (Week 1),
Arielle Gold, Snowboarding (Week 4),
Heather Richardson, Speedskating (Week 5),
