GoPro Athletes Named to Forbes 30 Under 30 Sports List

Forbes® Magazine has named GoPro athletes Lindsey Vonn, Alana Blanchard, and Shaun White to their prestigious 30 Under 30: Sports 2014 list for their influence in reinventing the world we live in. Vonn, the reigning Olympic downhill ski champion, is the female face of the United States at the Sochi Olympics, although she has recently bowed out of the Games due to her ailing knee. Blanchard, an accomplished professional surfer on the ASP tour and a sportswear model, has attracted a massive audience to womens surfing with her charisma, charm, and insane social network following. White, widely considered the best snowboarder ever, has built an empire around his name, and stacked up just about every contest trophy imaginable including two Olympic gold medals. 
GoPro is proud to have such incredible people representing the brand. Their tireless efforts to improve, not only their performances but also the landscape in which they compete, are truly inspirational.





Mark Burnett, five-time Emmy award winner and avid GoPro customer, said in a previous statement, "We have used GoPro cameras in some of our biggest productions, like Survivor and The Bible. GoPro has allowed us to capture and share fascinating new perspectives that previously weren’t possible or were too costly, which in the end makes for better story telling. We are always excited to see what GoPro is working on next."

"In a world of smartphones and increasingly small cameras, GoPro is still the film fans device of choice and the rugged gadget that will launch the careers of many future directors. If in doubt, check out the home made rocket that took a GoPro to space or the shark footage, both on YouTube." - T3 Award for the GoPro HERO3

"Despite a lot of newcomers in the field, GoPro is still the leader in adventure cameras. The new Hero3 Black manages to pack an f/2.8 wide-angle lens, a 12-megapixel sensor, and the power to shoot 30 still frames per second into a camera body that’s smaller than a bar of soap" – Outside Magazine "Gear of the Year" 2013
