An independent group backing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is out with a new TV ad featuring a trio of former Olympic athletes praising his stewardship of the 2002 Winter Games.

Restore Our Future is spending $7.2 million to run the ad in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The ad will also air in Michigan and Wisconsin.

In the ad, figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi, speed skater Derek Parra and skeleton racer Jimmy Shea offer testimonials to Romney.

The former Massachusetts governor is credited with turning around the financially troubled games in Salt Lake City and steering them to success and profit.

Shea says Romney, quote, "changed my life."

The ad does not mention President Barack Obama.
