Olympic athlete Bryan Clay joins Ask, Listen, Learn!

We’re very happy to announce that Bryan Clay, Gold medalist decathlete from the 2008 Olympics, is signing on with the Century Council’s Ask, Listen, Learn program!

Ask, Listen, Learn‘s goal is to encourage middle-school kids to say ‘YES’ to a healthy lifestyle and ‘NO’ to underage drinking. And we think Bryan Clay is an ideal person to convey this message, as an athlete who has applied hard work and healthy living to accomplish his goals.


Bryan has helped young people tap their inner strength and succeed for years now, via his Bryan Clay Foundation. We’ve been fortunate to work with athletes who are very engaged on the issues we address – from Apolo Ohno, to Shaq to Julie Foudy – and Bryan Clay is no exception.

Today, we announce our partnership with him at Horace Mann Middle School in Beverly Hills, CA. We’re looking forward to working with him through the 2012 Olympics and beyond.
