New York, August 1, 2008- According to the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) there will be 596 American athletes, among them 310 men and 286 women competing in all 30 Olympic games which are slated to be held in Beijing, China on August 8, 2008.

"The United States will send a strong team of 596 athletes who will represent our country with pride and honour," said USOC Chief Executive Officer Jim Scherr. "America's athletes recognize just how challenging the competitive environment will be, and they are preparing with this in mind. We are confident they will rise to the competitive challenges in Beijing."

The 47 states of the total 50 U.S. States will have athlete representatives competing in Beijing Olympic. The State of California have the largest number with 175, while New York is sending 25, and New Jersey 16. Montana, North Dakota and Vermont are not represented.

Interesting is that 20 women athletes on the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team are mothers. Among them is Torres, as well as three-time Olympic gold medalist Lisa Leslie (basketball of Hawthorne, Calif.) and 2004 Olympic champion Jennie Finch (softball from La Mirada, Calif.).

"The 2008 Olympic Games will be one of the most significant events of our generation, not only athletically, but culturally, socially, economically and environmentally," said USOC Chairman Peter Ueberroth. "The entire U.S. Olympic Team will travel to China as guests of the host nation and will be most appreciative of all they are doing to welcome athletes and visitors from around the world. The U.S. Team is ready to compete in a manner that makes this country proud."
