Olympic-Sized Girl Power

Posted on February 11 2014

"Girls compete with each other, woman empower one another."

The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi are currently underway. They started on February 7th with a moving Opening Ceremony and will conclude on the 23rd. Whether Alpine Skiing, Biathlon, Bobsled, Cross-Country, Curling, Figure Skating, Skiing, Snowboarding, Ice Hockey, Luge or Speed Skating, if it involves snow or ice, it's happening in Sochi this month.

Team USA always produces some amazing, kick-ass female athletes at the games and this year is no different. Here are some of the standout athletes from Team USA this year and where they stand so far:

Jamie Anderson - Age 23 - From Lake Tahoe
Snowboarder - Ladies' Slopestyle Gold Medal Winner

Gracie Gold - Age 18 - From Newton, MA
Figure Skater - Team Skate Bronze Medal Winner

Devin Logan - Age 20 - From Oceanside, CA
Freestyle Skiier - Ladies' Ski Slopestyle Silver Medal Winner

Lolo Jones - Age 31 - From Des Moines, Iowa
Bobsleigh & Track and Field
Lolo hasn't competed yet in these games, Bobsleigh doesn't start till the 16th, but a summer AND winter Olympian is definitely worthy of a mention.

Lindsey Van, Jessica Jerome & Sarah Hendrickson
Ages 29, 27, 19
From Detroit, Jacksonville, Salt Lake City
These three history makers are the first women to ever represent the USA in Women's Ski Jumping in Olympic history. The event was only open to men until this year. Congrats and good luck, ladies!

 

Of course, good luck to each and every athlete competing in Sochi this year. Your athletic abilities are truly something to be proud of. Go USA!
