Hispanic Olympic Athletes skillfully represented not only the Latino community but also the entire country in the 2012 London games

Many USA Latino athletes represented our country and our community in London. While some found their way to the podium and others fell short, everyone gave it their best. The week after the Olympics, the Latino business community asks, “What are the future plans of these Hispanic Olympic athletes?”

 

Hispanic Olympians
Ryan Lochte

Ryan Lochte
Ryan Lochte won six medals in 2004 and 2008. In 2012, the half-Cuban swimmer brought back five more for the U.S. One of the most decorated U.S. Olympians, Lochte is just taking it all in stride. He plans to appear on the high-school TV series “90210” in the fall, playing a cameo role as himself. Beyond that, Lochte will continue training for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where he will be the favorite now that Michael Phelps has retired.

 

Danell Leyva

Cuban-born gymnast Danell Leyva won a bronze medal in the coveted individual all-around competition, helping push a U.S. team traditionally outmatched by East European and Asian gymnasts into contention. The 20-year-old will undoubtedly compete again in Rio. According to his website, Leyva’s next big event is the “Progressive Skating and Gymnastics Spectacular” show combining the talents of figure skaters with the acrobatic skills of gymnasts.
