We’re happy to support our athletes in this admirable pursuit. We do the same for the millions of people who choose to plan a financial future with the help of TD Ameritrade.

Tim Burke

Biathlon

Tim, who won a silver medal at the 2013 World Championships, has the potential to become the first American ever to medal in biathlon at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games.  Injuries have twice threatened to sideline his career. But the thought of no longer competing fueled his passion, spurring him to look for opportunities to improve in other areas in his training. He believes perseverance over time helped him get where he is today, on the cusp of Gold at Sochi.

Ryan Callahan

Ice Hockey

Ryan was drafted by the NY Rangers in the fourth round of the 2004 NHL Draft. At age 26, he was named their 26th captain—one of the youngest in team history. As of last season, he played in 405 regular season NHL games, scoring 121 goals. He won a Silver Medal with Team USA in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.  With his “never quit” attitude, Ryan keeps working on little things to help improve his game, so he can take advantage of opportunities that come his way.

J.R. Celski

Short Track Speed Skating

J.R. broke the world record in the 500m distance in 2012, becoming the only athlete to ever break the 40-second barrier. At age 19, after a comeback from a career-threatening injury at the U.S. Olympic Trials, he won two Bronze Medals in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games.  He believes there is no one thing that keeps him at current level of proficiency, but rather doing several things consistently, on a daily basis—along with a constant desire to get better.

Patrick Deneen

Freestyle Skiing – Moguls

Patrick started on skis at 11 months old (in ski boots stuffed with newspaper).  Today, Patrick is a top-ranked U.S. Moguls skier, who is ranked No. 3 in the world, and a former World Champion and 2012 FIS World Cup Freestyle Finals Champion. Nicknamed the Rocket for his knack for speed, Patrick knows he has to be mentally tough to be a champion.  Although he crashed in the finals at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, he vows to be on the podium in Sochi.

Noelle Pikus-Pace

Skeleton

Currently ranked third in the world, Noelle is the first U.S. woman to win the World Championships in skeleton—by the largest margin in the history of the sport. Her first bid at gold in the Torino 2006 Olympic Winter Games, took a tragic turn when she was hit by a runaway bobsled. Not giving up on her dream of being an Olympian, she returned in 2010, coming within 1/10 of a second of the podium. Now her dream is to be a medalist in Sochi.

Danelle Umstead

Paralympic Alpine Skiing

At age 13, Danelle was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a condition that causes blindness. Her sight is now limited to less than five feet. To compete, her husband and guide Rob skis in front of her and communicates signals via helmet headsets. A member of the 2010 U.S. Paralympic team, she won bronze in Downhill and Super-Combined disciplines. As a team, they are 15-time National Champions and have 29 World Cup podiums.

Louie Vito

Snowboarding – Halfpipe

Louie won four of the past five U.S. Grand Prix Overall Championships and five career X Games medals, including two Gold Medals. Snowboarding since he was six years old, it was the fulfillment of a dream for him to compete in the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games for Team USA. Falling just short of the podium, he is now focused on winning Gold in Sochi. A fan of the sport, as well as a competitor, he continues to push himself to progress in riding every year.
