The 2014 Winter Olympics, will take place from 6 to 23 February 2014 in Sochi, Russia. Since 1988, Getty Images has been the Authorised Photo Agency for the IOC. Our coverage began with the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City, while our archival Olympic imagery goes back over one hundred years.

In the lead up to the Winter Olympics being held in Sochi, Russia, Janey Marks, Director of Sales, shares her list of the US athletes who will be in action and should perform well on the Olympic stage.

"Here are my views as to Team USA as we look to Sochi 2014 Games…keep in mind TEAM USA won 37 medals in Vancouver and I am very hopeful the team will either meet or surpass that total in Sochi.

Of these athletes, a number are at the top of their field while others are emerging talent who could surprise."

Editors Note: Janey Marks is Director of Sales for Getty Images.

Over the last few decades, prior to joining Getty Images, Marks had had the privilege of working in sports marketing/ promotion/ sales/ partnerships via positions on the client side with Budweiser, Lexus, Speedo and also had the privilege to manage the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour and to work for Billie Jean King.  

From Budweiser’s involvement in the 1984 Olympic Games where she created a Six Pack inflatable pin trading center (thus her love of Olympic pins for those of you who know her well), to managing Bud Light’s title sponsorship role with US Triathlon Series, Ironman Triathlon World Championship, to leveraging Bud’s visibility with EPSN via the first ever on board entitled TV yacht race camera (knows as the” Budweiser Yacht Cam”) to BUD’s logo placement on the secret keel when Dennis Connor recaptured the America’s Cup in 1987 in Australia, the stories she could tell are quite interesting to say the least.

Currently she manages Getty Images global relationships with Yahoo and Visa and work closely with P&G and McDonald’s on their global Olympic activations and with several sponsors on their USOC, IOC and FIFA activations. She manages all things Olympic and tennis-oriented in North America as well as managing Getty Images client relationship with Fox Sports amongst several strategic sport clients and agencies.
