Bryans named 2012-13 USOC Team of the Year

October 24, 2013 03:46 PM
Bob and Mike Bryan were named as the USOC's Team of the Year for 2012-13.

Bob and Mike Bryan are already the most successful men’s doubles team in history, capturing the Golden Slam earlier this year to go with a record 15 Grand Slam titles and 92 overall titles together.

But the world No. 1s can now add another distinction to their illustrious careers, as the United States Olympic Committee named the Bryans as its 2012-13 Team of the Year as part of the USOC’s annual awards.

The Bryans became the first men’s doubles team in history to own the Golden Slam – holding all four Grand Slam doubles titles plus the Olympic gold medal – with their victory at Wimbledon this year. Their Wimbledon win went with their titles at the French Open and Australian Open in 2013 as well as their US Open title and gold medal from the London Olympics in 2012.

The honor will be presented during an awards reception in conjunction with the 100 Days Out Celebration to commemorate the final countdown to the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games on Oct. 29 in New York.

The USOC SportsMan and SportsWoman of the Year awards have been presented annually to the top overall male and female athletes from USOC member organizations since 1974. In 1996, a team category was added to recognize the outstanding achievements of team members who might not otherwise have been eligible for individual awards.

The only other tennis players to be honored with Athlete of the Year awards are Pete Sampras (Sportsman of the Year, 1997) and Jennifer Capriati (Sportswoman of the Year, 2001) .
