The team behind the team? That means you. And our athletes want to thank you for your support.

Whether you added a stitch during the Raise Our Flag campaign, attended a countdown event or just found yourself swept up in the hundreds of inspiring stories authored by the 759 athletes who represented Team USA at the Olympic and Paralympic Games in London, those athletes want to say ...

Thank you, America
