RIESTER staff volunteered at the U.S. Olympic Committee’s Media Summit that took place at the Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah. The event welcomed hundreds of media from across the country and more than 100 athletes who are vying to compete in the Sochi Winter Olympic Games in Russia February 7-23, 2014.

Teaming up with the Park City Chamber Bureau, RIESTER Park City helped out behind the scenes including assisting at press conferences, interview roundtables, and escorting athletes and other dignitaries to media events.

Fun highlights included assisting with press conferences for two new Olympic sports, skier halfpipe and slopestyle. These new events will introduce X Games medalists Simon Demont, Tom Wallisch, David Wise, Grete Eliassen, among others to the Winter Olympics. Also at the U.S. Olympic Committee Summit, 2010 figure skating silver medalist Meryl Davis and Charlie White were interviewed by Cat Greenleaf, host of NBC’s Talk Stoop, and U.S. Champion figure skaters Marissa Castelli and Simon Shnapir were featured in a round table press event with other talented athletes.

Join RIESTER in cheering on America’s athletes and counting down to the Winter Olympics this February!
