Next Olympic Hopeful was created by the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee to increase and enhance the pipeline of world-class athletes pursuing Olympic sport in the United States.

From this pool of athletes, 50 were invited to the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Training Center in Colorado Springs in July to participate in the finalist phase of the program. Following the OPTC tryout, the six winners were invited to join the national team camps for the six participating sports: bobsled, cycling, rowing, rugby, skeleton and weightlifting.
