In an update to a story we put up last week, a sponsor has stepped forward to get Olympic weightlifter’s Sarah Robles to London.
Solve Media, pioneers in online advertising, announced this week that they are sponsoring Robles (as well as male archer Brady Ellison) in their quest for gold.
“We are proud to sponsor two of the U.S.’s most accomplished athletes and promising medalists, and look forward to cheering them on during the Games,” says Ari Jacoby, CEO of Solve Media. “Sarah and Brady are passionate and dedicated to their quest for gold, and respectively embody the ideals of Solve Media — massive lift and precise targeting.”
“Being a female weightlifter and Olympian comes with a variety of challenges,” says Sarah Robles. “But everyday I persevere to lift more, become stronger and change the perception of women’s weightlifting. Having a sponsor that supports my quest for gold and greater awareness around my sport is amazing, and that’s why I am excited to have Solve Media on my team.”
Robles is considered “The Strongest Women in America” and yet was struggling on a $400 a month stipend. With the money from Solve Media, her and her coach will soon be on a plane to join her teammates in London.
