Former Olympic Figure Skater Joins Clinton Campaign Staff

U.S. President Bill Clinton accepts a U.S. Olympic team jacket from U.S. figure skater Michelle Kwan, an Olympic silver medalist 29 April during ceremonies on the South Lawn at the White House in Washington, DC.

Michelle Kwan, a two-time Olympic medalist figure skater, has joined Hillary Clinton’s campaign as a full-time and permanent staffer, according to a Clinton aide.  Kwan was a five-time world champion figure skater and is a decorated medalist from the 1998 and 2002 Winter Olympics, writes CNN

Kwan will work on “surrogate outreach” and will engage surrogates “to help reach key constituencies and discuss the issues that matter most to working families,” the aide said Wednesday.

Kwan has worked with Clinton before as a State Department aide and worked as an adviser to Women-Lead, an initiative that facilitated high level U.S.-Chinese dialogue on women and girls.
