Visa is expected to include some of the athletes in a multi-media marketing campaign that will break closer to the Olympic Games.

We look forward to continuing our partnership for many years to come.”

Visa said that it selects its athletes based on criteria including the athlete’s personal journey to the Olympic and Paralympics Games, athletic achievements, and community involvement.
