August 1, 2012 — You’ve seen the broadcasters ask the Olympic athletes their questions on TV … but what do YOU really want to know?
What kind of jitters they get in the moments before they compete? What events they like to watch in their free time? Who they’re making friends with? What the food in the cafeteria like?
Whatever it is, here’s your chance to ask an Olympian … as it’s happening! Team USA swimmer, Anthony Ervin, will take some kids’ questions … while he’s there! This is a really special opportunity so send in your questions below. Even if you’re not from the U.S., we encourage you to submit! He’ll answer what he can. Thanks, Anthony! Super cool. Check back here for his answers!
Anthony will be competing in the 50 meter freestyle on August 2nd, so watch for him. It’s the same event he won gold in at the Olympics in 2000, 12 years ago! Here’s HTE’s previous story and interview with him.
Having covered the Olympics in Sydney in 2000 with NBC, I can tell you there are few events more exciting and inspiring than to see the world come together in the name of sport, and to watch athletes from all over the world be their very best. NBC does a great job covering it and you can follow all the events and stories on their website: NBC Olympics .
In the meantime, HTE will be taking a little break to enjoy the Olympics and recharge our batteries for the Fall. We’ll be posting here and there, but mainly spending time with family and enjoying the outdoors. We hope you have a great summer too.
