“I congratulate this deserving group of grantees and applaud their exceptional drive and dedication,” Schwarzman said. “It is an honor to support such a talented group of men and women and I hope that with the USTAF Foundation’s help and their own determination, we can help them achieve their Olympic ambitions.”
