"The Olympic Development Academy is going to be a game changer for our next generation. I was fortunate enough to enter the sport under the USAC National Team umbrella, T-Mobile, and head to Europe about as green as they come— my first few years in Europe were critical to setting the stage and foundation to becoming a 4x Olympian and eventually becoming a 3x Olympic Gold Medalist. In order to be a champion you must take risk, dive in, and get after it. The opportunity to have such guidance and a safe environment to kick off your career is an opportunity of a lifetime. If you have dreams and goals of becoming an Olympian, never say never— make it happen!”
