For the second year in a row, Olympic medalist Brittany Bowe has been named the Utah Female Olympian of the Year! Brittany was given the designation based on her 2019 accomplishments.
"Utah is known as the State of Sport — and for good reason! Through the years of appreciation for adventure, we have carved out a distinct reputation as the premier sport destination for Olympic, professional, amateur and action sporting events. By leveraging our world-class venues and awe-inspiring backdrops, Utah also has an established reputation as a top international sports destination.
From hosting the world during the 2002 Winter Olympic Games to providing an unmatched environment for professional, amateur and youth events, Utah truly has a strong sports heritage. As such, I am confident that the State of Sport Awards nominating committee selects honorees that embody excellence in Utah sports."
