U.S. Bobsled Team Races Custom KOA Sled
Kampgrounds of America, a prime sponsor of the gold-medal-winning United States bobsled team at the 2010 Winter Olympics, will be prominently featured when the U .S. Bobsled Team competes in the World Cup Bobsledding event Saturday (Dec. 18) at Lake Placid, N.Y.
Elana Meyers, a bronze medalist at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, will pilot the yellow, KOA-themed sled.
“We’re thrilled to again be able to play a role in the success of the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Teams,” KOA CEO Jim Rogers said in a news release. “To have the team race in a Kampgrounds of America-themed sled makes it all the more special. We know the team will continue its resurgence as a power in world bobsled competition, and it’s wonderful to be able to share in that.”
The Lake Placid World Cup event will not be broadcast live, but will be shown by NBC Universal the following weekend.
