Help us create a national treasure that tells the story of what it means to be a U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athlete.
Cleaning out the basement? Attacking the attic? Conquering the closet? Don’t toss it all just yet!
If you have treasures from your Olympic or Paralympic experience, hang on to them for now and send us an image via the link below. We look for all kinds of items– training schedules, tickets, competition numbers, photographs, scrapbooks, programs, medals, ribbons, uniforms, warm-ups and equipment.
Two-time Olympian Shannon Miller, models her 1992 Olympic team jacket, one of the items she discovered while sorting through personal boxes of treasures for the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum. The winner of 16 World Championships and Olympic medals, Miller is the most decorated gymnast, male or female, in U.S. history. At the 1992 Barcelona Games, she was the most successful American athlete, winning five medals. Her memoir, “It’s Not About Perfect: Competing for my Country and Fighting For My Life,” was released this year and tells the story of trial, triumph and life after cancer.
The U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum will be a timeless institution that reflects Team USA pride and helps visitors experience the thrill of The Games. As future generations of champions realize their dreams, the museum will grow and evolve alongside them, providing an ever-fresh experience with each visit.
