WME Signs 18-Year-Old Track Star Sydney McLaughlin
WME has signed track and field star Sydney McLaughlin for representation in all off-the-track areas in advance of the '20 Tokyo Games. A team of agents across WME, including Jill Smoller, Rob Koslowsky, Jessica Thomas and Marissa Hurwitz, will represent McLaughlin, who was named the Gatorade Female Athlete of the Year in both '16 and '17. McLaughlin, 18, competed, but did not medal in the '16 Rio Games, becoming the youngest athlete to make the U.S. team since '80. WME will work with track and field agent Wes Felix of The Evolve Agency, who represents McLaughlin for on-track work.
