Brittney Reese, celebrated for her formidable presence in women’s long jump, brings a wealth of accolades to her new role, including four Olympic appearances, one Olympic gold medal, and eight World Championship titles. Having transitioned into coaching in Gulfport, Miss., Reese’s post-competitive career continues to influence the track and field landscape significantly. Kara Winger complements this partnership with her storied career in the javelin throw, holding the American record and a World silver medal from 2022, capping an impressive 18-year stint on the international stage.

Reese expressed her enthusiasm for the alliance, stating, “I’m excited to announce my collaboration with TrackTown USA. They were a major part of my success while I was competing by making sure the crowd was involved and creating an amazing environment for athletes to feel appreciated.” She highlighted the organization’s commitment to creating opportunities for athletes beyond their competitive years and fostering the next generation of track and field talent.

Echoing Reese’s sentiments, Winger shared her excitement about joining forces with TrackTown USA, remarking, “TrackTown USA’s dedication to showcasing all parts of our great sport is so exciting to be a part of! There is truly something for everyone in track and field. I’m giddy to help tell stories of amazing throwers and to serve their devoted fans in this pivotal year.”

The ambassadorship initiative will see Reese and Winger spearheading efforts to enrich the fan experience through content creation and engaging in-person activities at key events. Anticipation is building for their involvement at high-profile gatherings such as the Prefontaine Classic and the U.S. Olympic Team Trials – Track & Field, where they will connect with younger enthusiasts and ardent field event fans alike at the iconic Hayward Field.

TrackTown USA CEO Michael Reilly underscored the importance of this partnership, stating, “TrackTown USA is committed to providing a top-notch experience for everyone who visits Hayward Field and to nurturing fandom overall.” He further emphasized that collaborating with Reese and Winger will ensure that fans of jumps and throws receive an unparalleled experience tailored to their specific interests.

This ambassadorship represents a significant step forward in promoting track and field events, with Reese and Winger at the forefront of creating a more inclusive and engaging atmosphere for fans and athletes alike.
