Olympic silver medalist appears at D-Patrick for ‘Drive for Team USA’

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - An Olympic silver medalist made an appearance in the Tri-State on Monday.

2012 London Games medalist Kelci Bryant was at D-Patrick for BMW's Drive for Team USA.

For every person that came out and test drove a vehicle, BMW of North America donated $10 to Team USA as they prepare for next year's Olympic and Paralympic games.

Bryant won her silver medal in synchronized women's 3-meter diving at the London games, and says that BMW is helping fund the athletes' dreams.

"All the help we can get, it really makes the biggest difference, and for everyone that comes out to do the test drive today, it's $10 that will go to someone like me, someone who is wanting to achieve their Olympic dream," she told us.

Every person who test drove at D-Patrick also received a $1,000 credit towards the purchase of a BMW.
