The International Olympic Committee (IOC) today announced the first winner of its global digital initiative “The Best of Us Challenge”. The winner, Grant Gibbons of Sterling VA, USA, will receive a trip for two to the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games taking place in February 2010. Mr Gibbons, who was declared the winner after a random selection process, submitted a video to the Challenge site showing him beating Estonian Olympian Gerd Kanter at a discus pick-up challenge.
Grant Gibbons said, “The Best of Us Challenge is great: not only do we have a chance to show off what we can do, but we get to see a side to our favourite Olympic athletes that we normally don't get to see.”
