Somerset <3 Olympics
Are you loving the triumphant Olympic theme music and cheering on Team USA at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games? We are!
We're all waiting patiently to see if superstars like Michael Phelps and Misty May-Treanor can repeat their amazing wins from 2008 and who from Team USA will bring home the gold. But what about New Jersey Olympians...?
Somerset County has a long-standing relationship with the Olympics. The U.S. Olympic Equestrian Team is chosen each year at the U.S. Equestrian Headquarters in Peapack-Gladstone. And famous Olympians like Joetta Clark Diggs, four-time Olympian track-and-field superstar, call Hillsborough home.
If you or someone you know wants to be inspired to someday be an Olympian, you should definitely check out the USGA Museum, U.S. Equestrian Team Headquarters or the Tour of Somerville, the nation's oldest cycling race. Somerset is steeped in sporting tradition, with all eyes on London.
