What does wearing the Team USA uniform mean to you?: Putting on the Team USA uniform makes me part of a group of ambassadors representing the pride of our skill, along with the pride of our country. The uniform also represents the American dream - the freedom to find what you love, and the good fortune and opportunity that allows you to achieve your goals through passion and hard work.
