Former Gold Medal-winning gymnast Dominique Dawes, who competed in the '96 Atlanta and '00 Sydney Games, has signed with PMG Sports. She joins a list of former Olympians represented by the agency that includes Mark Spitz, Janet Evans and Bruce Jenner. Dawes has been working in media the last few years and had a broadcast agent until four months ago. She currently does not have any endorsements and is hoping that PMG can help her find some corporate sponsors. Dawes said the decision to sign with PMG "has to do with some of the career goals I've set for myself in regards to wanting to pursue media opportunities on television and the web and wanting to establish more long term relationships with companies. I think signing with PMG puts me in the best position to pursue those opportunities." PMG President Evan Morgenstein said, "We look forward to buillding her on camera hosting career in addition to building her speaking and endorsement portfolios."
