U.S. Olympic-qualifying Biathlete Tracy Barnes joined Ali Nejad in ESPN’s GUINNESS SUITE to share details of her decision to give up her Olympic spot so her sister Lanny Barnes could compete. Tracy is currently in Sochi to cheer on her sister!
The ESPN GUINNESS SUITE is the first-of-its-kind content platform for ESPN that tells the untold stories of today’s biggest names in sports and entertainment for a more substantive interview and “off the field” stories airing weekly during SportsCenter, and living on the GUINNESS SUITE Digital Hub, through June 2014. The GUINNESS SUITE is part of the Guinness brand’s “Made of More” campaign that launched in the fall with the emotionally charged Basketball TV spot.
