What is Champions Plaza?

On the heels of the 2014 Winter Olympics, in which several of our local athletes earned Olympic medals, the idea of creating a Champions Plaza was born.  To honor and recognize these athletes, City Council approved the construction and design of a Champions Plaza. 

Olympic Plaza

Located just across from Lakeview Commons, the 11’ bronze ‘”Spirit of Competition” sculpture represents male and female athletes reaching for a ring. The sculpture was created by artist Gareth Curtiss.

On June 15, 2018 the sculpture was unveiled and the initial honorees were inducted in a community celebration. The first round of athletes recognized through installation of a personalized brick on the plaza floor include: 

  • Jamie Anderson
  • Maddie Bowman
  • Travis Cabral
  • Elena Hight
  • Jonna Mendes
  • Shaun Palmer
  • Glen Plake
  • Travis Ramos
  • Kyle Smaine
  • Hannah Teter
  • Juan Torres
