Yesterday we kicked off the Olympic Trials madness by announcing the winners to our Totally Trials contest. First of all thank you to every duo who took the time to join in on the fun. We were blown away by the creativity. It was our first contest of this magnitude and we didn't know what to expect. Voting was the hardest part of the contest, of course. So we nominated a select number of our Oiselle team (out of office - since there are only four of us here) to vote 1 – 3, and everyone at HQ did as well. We didn’t discuss until we showed our lists.

Despite not receiving a billion entries, it was very hard for me to pick my top three. So much strength, humor, beauty, creativity, joy, enthusiasm… so much work and love went into creating these stories of friendship and why they wanted to join Oiselle at the Olympic Trials in Eugene. After tallying all votes, nearly 100% unanimously Sarah and Emily topped the lists with their Roga inspired video. And that is how a contest is won.

Also with near 100% unanimous votes came the #2, #3 places. Congrats to Barb and Steffanie. And Susan and Jeri. These two teams will enjoy $300 to spend at

Below are the three winners’ video applications.

We are excited to have Emily and Sarah join our HUGE team of women in Eugene. We LOVE this sport, like we know you do. I hope you join our live tweeting and blogging from Hayward during the Trials. This contest is only a small part of the Oiselle Totally Trials excitement that’s been brewing all year! In fact on Friday we'll be announcing three Oiselle athletes headed to the Trials!

How about you, any of you planning a trip to Hayward to catch all the action? Whether you’re watching from afar or right there – what event can’t you wait to see?
