It’s February, and the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics start this week! With many events in 15 different sports, this year’s games look to be very exciting. Taking place in Vancouver, the 2010 winter games were much closer to home for U.S. athletes than this year’s trek all the way to Russia.
Take a look at some of AEI’s featured speakers who competed in previous Winter Olympic Games.
