Overview

35-Foot Bronze & Aluminum
Strength of Mind, Body, and Spirit– that is the theme of this monumental sculpture.
The one ton, 24-foot globe is supported by four body builders: a female Pan-American Games competitor, an African-American male representing the US Olympic Team, a Paralympic male and an Ancient Greek Olympian.
Stars on the globe represent each Olympic host city. Encircling the base are 45 bronze icons representing each of the Olympic and Pan American Games Federations.
The sculpture greets visitors to The U.S. Olympic Training Center.
