CJA’s Rowder recognized by US Olympic Committee and USA Luge

U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Luge give high marks for our Rowder’s Sochi blogs

Chicago— CJA director Frank Rowder was recently recognized by the US Olympic Committee and the USA Luge for his recent blogs on the 2014 Winter Olympic Games held in Sochi, Russia February 7-23. It was the first Olympics in Russia since the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991.

Rowder received high marks and was among the first to report that Sweden withdrew its bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. He said Poland and perhaps a Central Asian country will be in the mix. A former professional soccer player, he frequently lectures on events in Central Asia and is an associate board member of the Central Asian Productivity Research Center.

The US Olympic Committee is based in Colorado Springs, CO., while USA Luge has its headquarters in Lake Placid, NY.
