Colorado Springs, Colo. - The U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) and Doreen Sullivan, President of Post No Bills, Inc. - the U.S. Olympic Team Licensee responsible for the design and development of the U.S. Olympic Team Rings - are proud to announce that sales of the rings have generated more than $100,000 in revenue to the U.S. Olympic Team. Sales of Team Rings benefit the training and development of Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

The U.S. Olympic Team Rings are a set of red, white and blue wrist bands containing the inscription "Dream. Believe. Achieve." Available in both youth and adult sizes, the timely fashion-forward wristbands are joined by a stainless steel clasp featuring the USA/5-ring logo and "Amazing Awaits," with "Beijing 08-08-08," on the back.

Several National Governing Bodies, including the U.S. Equestrian Federation, USA Field Hockey, USA Gymnastics, USA Judo, USA Softball and USA Triathlon, have raised thousands of dollars in revenue to fund their sports through online sales, at their events and at U.S. Olympic Team Trials.

The Team Rings program will be on-going through the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games and has already gained interest from U.S. Speedskating and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association.

The Official U.S. Olympic Team Rings program continues to gain momentum throughout Team USA and Americans of all ages. With less than a month until the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, now is the time to purchase Team Rings and show your support for U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes. Log on to the official site, www.usolympiccollection.org, to purchase Team Rings and select a specific sport to receive an additional $1 per purchase.

Team Rings are also available at more than 1,100 7-Eleven locations across the country.
