Team USA Light ESB in Red, White, and Blue for the Countdown to the Olympic and Paralympic Games!

Let's go, Team USA!

On April 17, the Empire State Building sparkled its world-famous tower lights in a patriotic red, white, and blue to celebrate the 100-day countdown to the Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games to take place in Paris.

Earlier in the day, the Empire State Building hosted a lighting ceremony with Team USA Olympians and Paralympians, which included Evita Griskenas, Kaleo Kanahele Maclay, Jessica Long, Nick Mayhugh, Blake Haxton, Daniela Moroz, Hans Henken, Cheryl Reeve, and Matthew Stutzman, in partnership with the United States Olympics & Paralympics Committee.

Founded in 1894 and headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee serves as both the National Olympic Committee and National Paralympic Committee for the United States. The USOPC is focused on protecting, supporting, and empowering America's athletes, and is responsible for fielding U.S. teams for the Olympic, Paralympic, Youth Olympic, Pan American, and Parapan American Games. The committee serves as the steward of the Olympic and Paralympic movements in the U.S.
