The U.S. Olympic Committee has released a study showing Olympic athletes most positively represent the U.S., followed by Major League Baseball players.

The USOC released the poll Tuesday, saying the numbers prove the federation's sponsors get good value for their money.

The survey, conducted by a research partner of the USOC's, was conducted in April, less than two months after America's record-setting performance of 37 medals for a Winter Olympics at the Vancouver Games.

One of the questions asked to more than 3,000 respondents was which athletes most positively represent the United States to the world: 90 percent said USOC athletes, while baseball players came in second with 30 percent of the vote.
