Why Choose Billy?

I was all set to do some blogging about the U.S. ski team and Ted Ligety’s program for urban kids when through the power of social media, the former U.S. flag bearer for the Closing Ceremony of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games retweeted one of my Sochi 2014 Sports Techie tweets in support of EveryStep.

Catapult Sports has sports technology made Down Under for the world’s use.

Catapult Sports
