Pro bono client for PRTitan, the Armenian bobsled team, has
qualified for the Olympics in Salt Lake City.
Armenia allows its former citizens around the world to wear their
uniforms in competitions. So San Jose, CA residents Dan Janjigian and
Yorgo Alexandrou will compete for their homeland this year, and will
practice by racing their 400-pound bobsled down suburban streets.
Netting coverage for the team used to be hard, but Titan scored a recent
front-page feature in the San Jose Mercury News, and David Abramson of
PRTitan said it is no longer considered a long shot. "Donations are
starting to pour in," he said, adding that the team finished fifth and
sixth for their best races ever.
Talk about taking an uphill battle, downhill.
