SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

One Springfield insurance company has signed on to be an Olympic sponsor in the 2014 games in Sochi, Russia.

On Wednesday, Liberty Mutual celebrated its sponsorship of Team USA's three-time speed skating Olympic medalist Joey Cheek.

Liberty Mutual offices nationwide hosted rallies like these with past and present Olympians.

The company's sponsorship will help professional U.S. athletes, like Cheek, to stay competitive in the games.

"Right now, all across the country, the top athletes from around the world are preparing for these games, and the U.S. team is looking fantastic. They're training right now six or seven hours a day, six days a week, 11 months a year, which makes sponsors like Liberty Mutual that I'm here today with all the more important to be able to afford to pay for that training so that we can go and compete against the world's best," Cheek said.

Feb. 7 officially marked the one-year point until the 2014 Winter Olympics begins.
