Among the Americans on Team Visa are Hilary Knight (women’s hockey), Mikaela Shiffrin (alpine skiing), Gus Kenworthy (freestyle skiing), Chloe Kim (snowboarder) and Oksana Masters (para cross-country skiing and para biathlon). Team Visa also includes several former U.S. Olympians, including women’s hockey player Angela Ruggiero and ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White. Visa Chief Brand & Innovation Marketing Officer Chris Curtin noted the credit card company will “debut the latest in wearable payment technologies” on the ground in PyeongChang. He added the company will be unveiling additional campaign elements in the coming weeks and months. Team Visa first launched ahead of the '00 Sydney Games, and the company has been a TOP sponsor for more than 30 years.
