San Francisco 2012 - In Their Own Words

“The Bay Area and Northern California provide a wide assortment of the best training and living conditions for elite athletes. With beautiful, snowy mountains and the abundance of existing skating and Winter facilities, in addition to the vast array of programs and opportunities catering to all of the Summer sports, it's no wonder that our region has produced so many Olympians. Our diversity of cultures, combined with the love of sports and outdoor activities that is so prevalent here, will ensure that the Bay Area community unites around the 2012 San Francisco Olympic Games to cheer on the greatest sporting event in the world.”

    -Eric Heiden, 1976 & 1980 Speed Skating
