NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 20, 2012) -
Brady Ellison is a 23 year-old archer, who most recently won a silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics for the Men's Team Archery competition -- the first medal won by the Team USA at the Games. Prior to that, he was ranked the #1 archer in the world having come in first place in both the 2010 and 2011 World Championships.
- Brady is available to discuss his experiences as an Olympic athlete and what it is like to be the best archer in the U.S., what it's like to be up on the podium winning this country's first medal in the 2012 Games, and what lies ahead for him.
- It's not widely known that besides having a rigorous training schedule, being an Olympic athlete is also taxing financially. Brady has been fortunate enough to be sponsored by archery equipment companies, but in the final days leading up to the Olympics also caught the eye of an unexpected sponsor, Solve Media, a New York-based advertising and security technology company.
Archery was the most-watched event at the Games and with the recent popularity of The Hunger Games and Game of Thrones, interest in archery is at an all-time high. Plus, Brady's inspiring story garnered national attention leading up to the Olympics. The country is interested in learning what comes next for Brady.
