The United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee announced Monday, March 9, that the 2020 Team USA Media Summit has been postponed.

“Out of an abundance of caution, and in an effort to limit any potential exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19) by Team USA athletes, members of the media, staff and volunteers, we have made the decision to postpone the 2020 Team USA Media Summit,” said Luella Chavez D’Angelo, USOPC chief communications and marketing officer. “We are already at work exploring ways to recreate, or find new, opportunities for athletes and media – be they in-person or remote. We thank all who had planned to attend for their interest, support and understanding.”
