This year’s United States Olympic team is sending 230 athletes to Sochi – the largest ever U.S Olympic Team. For this week’s “Fitness Moment” there is one particular athlete that we want to call out as he embodies the true definition of dedication and proves beyond doubt that keeping one’s body in shape defies the aging process.
