Apolo Ohno Helps Announce New US Olympic Partnership with BMW


8-Time Olympic Speed-skating Medalist Apolo Ohno (After a great visit to the Today Show) along with other members of the US Olympic Family were on-hand at the BMW dealership on 57th and 11th street in NYC for the big announcement that BMW has re-joined the Olympic Movement as a sponsor of Team USA!

BMW will be sponsoring the USOC directly as well as four sports: Speedskating, Bobsled/Skeleton, Swimming and Track and Field.

What is most interesting about this partnership is that they plan to not only provide funds, but also be a resource for improving the technology of our athlete’s equipment to help them go faster!

So, what has Ohno been doing since the Olympics? He’s got a book coming out in October (I will definitely check that out) and he’s currently trying to build a career in TV.  (Best of Luck Apolo! You’re a true Olympic hero!)

Tonight, I’ll be joining teammates Keeth Smart, Erinn Smart, Susie Paxton for an event with the British Consulate to celebrate the two-year countdown to the London Olympics!!!
