SHEEX Olympic Trials Spotlight: Hyleas Fountain and David Oliver
SHEEX Athlete Ambassadors Hyleas Fountain and David Oliver will step up to the line at the Olympic Trials later this week to race for positions on the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team that will compete in London. Both athletes are members of the SHEEX sponsored Track and Field Athletes Association (TFAA) whose aim is to support, educate and guide athletes through their professional careers. Fountain and Oliver headline the over 60 Olympic Trials qualifiers from the TFAA.
Hyleas Fountain enters the competition as the 2008 Olympic Silver Medalist in the heptathlon. The heptathlon consists of seven track and field events over the course of two days, (100 Meter Hurdles, High Jump, Shot Put, 200 Meters, Long Jump, Javelin, 800 Meters), making it a true test of all-around athletic ability.
David Oliver is the American Record Holder in the 110 Meter Hurdles, with a time of 12.89, and one of the favorites heading into the Trials to make the Olympic Team.
