LAST CALL: Armenia bobsled team scores gold in press coverage

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.
