Kristi Yamaguchi Launches Fitness Apparel Line, And 10 Other Olympians Who Went From Gold Medalist To Health Entrepreneur

They may be well known for setting records on the track or in the pool, but many of the U.S. top Olympians have a passion for health and fitness that goes above and beyond their sport of choice.

Case in point: This week, Kristi Yamaguchi, world-famous figure skater and gold-medal winner at the 1992 Albertville Olympic Games announced the launch of her new line of fitness apparel called Tsu.ya, which will include yoga pants, tanks and jackets, Well + Good reported.

"I designed the line so that as a busy woman, you can get your workout in but also go run errands, go to the grocery store, and have lunch with friends -- but still look good and feel good,” she told the site.

A number of her fellow American gold-medal winners have also found their niche in the health-and-fitness business world. Here’s a collection of a few -- who would you add to the list? Tell us in the comments below!
