It's my pleasure to be able to bring you the stories of current and former Olympic Athletes and Hopefuls about their story and path to the games. From Gold Medal Winners to unfortunate injuries, for the amount of blood, sweat, tears, effort, energy, and money Our Athletes put in on a daily basis to be the best in the world, the least we can do is learn more about what they endure. Trials and tribulations, short comings and over coming the odds, these are the stories of Our Athletes from their mouth to your ears.
