The three medal winners of the Goodyear Get There Award recognizes “those most responsible for helping American athletes achieve their dream of competing on the world’s greatest stage,” the company said.
The three medal winners were: James Ravannack, Metairie, La., for his support of wrestler Daniel Cormier; Coach Brian Barker, Monroe, Conn., for his support of tennis player James Blake; and Jim Pedro, Salem, N.H., for his support of judo player Ronda Rousey.
The award winners were selected from a group of 28 individual honorees representing each major sport discipline.
"Goodyear is committed to developing best-in-class innovations and breakthrough technologies that help consumers reach their destinations… or ‘Get there,’" said Joey Viselli, director of the Goodyear brand. "What better embodiment of that philosophy than to honor those unsung heroes that have helped American athletes get to the ultimate athletic stage." (Tire Review/Akron)
