Good Luck Team USA!

Jul 30, 2012 | Blog

With the 2012 Olympic Games already underway in London, my wife Jeanette and I would like to congratulate the members of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team on qualifying to represent our country. Each athlete’s dedication and perseverance throughout training is a source of inspiration and pride for all Americans.  

On behalf of the entire state of Florida, we would also like to send a special congratulations to the members of Team USA who grew up in Florida and those who now call Florida home. Hailing from all over our state, these athletes entered the games having already touched our hearts with their life stories and contributions to our communities. We look forward to watching our fellow Floridians as they chase their Olympic dreams. I’m sure they will continue to inspire during the games and beyond.  

Best of luck to Team USA as they continue their quest for gold.
