'BMW Performance Team' Revealed for the Sochi 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games

BMW of North America is an official Mobility Partner of the United States Olympic Committee (USOC).  The  BMW Performance Team for the Sochi 2014 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games is a selected group of U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes and hopefuls who will receive financial support as well as access to BMW resources and technologies as they strive for the gold.  The members of the BMW Performance Team include two-time World Champion Steve Langton (bobsled), 2010 Olympic bronze medalist Elana Meyers (bobsled), two-time Olympic gold medalist Alana Nichols (Paralympic alpine skiing), three-time World Sprint Champion Heather Richardson (speedskating), eight-time World Cup gold medalist Evan Strong (Paralympic snowboarding) and 2010 Olympic gold medalist Curt Tomasevicz (bobsled).

The collaboration between the world's greatest athletes and BMW is natural. Athleticism and performance is an important part of what makes BMW vehicles so popular. BMW engineers vehicles that are powerful, fast and controlled. The idea is based on an athlete's body that is perfectly proportioned, strong, graceful and agile just like the 2014 BMW 3 Series. BMW works with different types of athletes who perform on land, water, snow and ice and the one thing that remains consistent is their inspiring commitment to performance and their passion for sport. This inspires BMW to find new ways to support each athlete's journey to gold. 

In addition to its financial support of Team USA, BMW is also applying its engineering expertise to design a new two-man bobsled for use by Team USA in the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Working closely with USA Bobsled & Skeleton Federation (USBSF) for more than two years, BMW is aiming to help Team USA win its first Olympic gold medal in the event since 1936. Who better to help design the next winning bobsled than the engineering prowess behind the 2013 BMW X1? Ada drivers looking for athletic dynamics and comfort will find both in the 2013 BMW X1.
