Meet Tracy Evans
Tracy Evans grew up in Hornell, New York in an avid sports family of top-tier athletes. From a very early age, Tracy was snow skiing and competing in both gymnastics and Equestrian riding. Tracy’s brother Bob, U.S. Freestyle Ski Team Aerialist and two-time Olympic Coach, introduced Tracy to the world of Freestyle Aerials in 1989. Though she swore she’d never do something that crazy, Tracy’s raw athletic ability combined with her background in trampolines and gymnastics made her a natural in Aerials.
Tracy made the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team in 1991 and competed in the 1994, 1998, and 2002 Olympic Games, and earned the title of 2002 U.S. National Champion. In 1998, Tracy started AthleteSource CASTING. Her motivation and competitive spirit continually drive her to set herself apart in the Sport Casting industry.
AthleteSource CASTING has developed a specialized niche and solid reputation in the Commercial, Film, Television and Print industries. We strive to cast the most appropriate and authentic athletic talent to portray the roles your project demands, making your production or advertisement the best it can be.
In 2008, Tracy founded Kids Play International, a non-profit organization devoted to using sport and the Olympic values to empower girls, develop supportive boys and create healthy and inclusive families-communities in the post-genocide affected countries of Rwanda and Cambodia. check out our Get Involved page.
