Angela Ruggiero could join IOC athletes' commission
U.S. women's hockey player Angela Ruggiero is under consideration for one of two openings on the International Olympic Committee athletes' commission, the Colorado Springs Gazette reports. Ruggiero could help the U.S. Olympic Committee repair its overseas image and give the Harvard graduate a USOC board position.
Ruggiero, 30, plans to spend her downtime at her fourth Olympics telling athletes "why I want to be a part of it and why I'll do a good job for them. ... You're helping out in the Olympic movement, and you're the voice of the athletes to the Olympic movement."
