Athletes USA recently announced a partnership with South African Olympic champion and NCAA All-American Roland Schoeman.

Regarding the partnership, Schoeman said,

“I am excited and proud to announce that I have partnered with Athletes-USA. I was blessed to have been awarded a scholarship to attend the University of Arizona where I went on the win the NCAA Championship and become a 24 x All American. I wish that Athletes USA had been around while I was being recruited, while I fortunately made a good decision there are thousands of athletes that aren’t afforded the opportunity to attend the college of their dreams. There are unfortunately too many people out there giving the wrong advice to prospective college athletes.  That’s why I am excited to be partnering with Athletes USA, they are a world leading sports scholarship agency that take the time and make the effort to ensure that you’re not only properly prepared to attend a US College but that you are able to go to a college that will help you fulfill your dreams. Allow us the opportunity to help you get the scholarship you deserve.”

Athletes USA CEO & Founder, Chris Vidal, added,

“Athletes USA is excited to announce our new partnership with Roland Schoeman. We are extremely honored to have the pleasure to work with Roland. His experience and extremely successful swimming career will be hugely valuable for our swim athletes during their college recruiting process.  At Athletes USA we want to help athlete’s become champions. In order to achieve that goal you need to build a team of former champions and that’s why we are very excited to have a four time Olympian, 10x World record holder and Olympic Gold medalist Roland Schoeman part of our team.”
