The Olympics are a special opportunity to represent your country and I wanted our suits to convey a real USA spirit. I am really excited to be racing in the stars and stripes in Sochi. The American team looks to really be in the mix for the first time in 40 years and we want to be noticed!

Bj Sport has been great to work with in taking our ideas and integrating our USA spirit into their great technical clothing line.  We can be totally confident going into Sochi that we will have the technical gear we need to perform at our best.
