Olympic medalists Michelle Kwan, Bonnie Blair and Dan Jansen will be joined by six American Olympic hopefuls on a Rose Parade float entitled "Quest for the Best" Jan. 1 in Pasadena.

Kwan, a two-time figure skating medalist, and speedskaters Blair (six medals) and Jansen (1994 gold medalist) will share billing on the Anheuser-Busch float with aspiring Olympians Shannon Bahrke (freestyle skiing), Steve Fisher (snowboarding), Steve Holcomb (bobsled), Katherine Reutter (speedskating), Rebecca Sorenson (skeleton) and Marco Sullivan (alpine skiing).

And for fans of the Clydesdales that will pull the float, that lineup will be Dick (wheel horse), Fez (wheel horse), Tim (wheel-body horse), Bernie (wheel-body horse), Alan (body horse), Scooby (swing horse), Mike (swing-lead horse) and Dave (swing-lead horse).
