Colorado Home to World-Class Olympic Training Facility in Colorado Springs

DENVER - Colorado is home to a world-class Olympic training facility and today Governor Jared Polis sent his best wishes and congratulations to Colorado’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes as they head to compete in the XXXII Olympic Games in Tokyo. More than 32 Colorado athletes are set to compete in the Olympics, representing the U.S. in sports including cycling, gymnastics, rowing, sport climbing, taekwondo, track and field, volleyball, and wrestling. 

“Congratulations and best of luck to our Colorado athletes as they head to compete in the Tokyo Olympic Games. This year's Olympic games carry extra meaning for so many athletes as they were forced to put their athletic aspirations on hold last year due to COVID. Years of training all lead up to this global event and I commend Colorado’s athletes for their dedication and grit as they compete in front of the world.  Colorado takes pride in every Team USA athlete and is proud to be the home of the brand new United States Olympic & Paralympic Museum in Colorado Springs. Whether you're an athlete that trained at our state’s world-class Olympic training facilities in Colorado Springs or elsewhere, I look forward to cheering every athlete on.”
