KOA-sponsored U.S. bobsled team wins gold in Vancouver
Kampgrounds of America's (KOA) sponsorship of the 2010 USA Bobsled team may have brought the athletes some good luck.
The four-man bobsled team dubbed "Night Train" took home a gold medal at the Olympic games in Vancouver. It was the first gold medal for a U.S. bobsled team in 62 years.
The team, which consists of bobsledders Steve Holcomb, Justin Olsen, Steve Mesler and Curt Tomasevicz, is also the current World Champion and World Cup Champion team.
"KOA is a great company and proved to be an enthusiastic partner," said Darrin Steele, CEO of the United States Bobsled and Skeleton Federation (USBSF). "We depend on sponsorships like this one with KOA to have success like we had at this Olympics."
KOA CEO Jim Rogers congratulated the U.S. team, and said the relationship between the team and KOA has been rewarding for both sides.
"The Winter Olympics brought the world's elite athletes together to demonstrate the very best in outdoor recreation," said Rogers. "Both KOA and the USBSF share a passion for dedication, hard work, competitive excellence and national pride and we are proud to be a member of the USBSF family."
