Sep 17, 2012

Nick Garner of SportsTalk4Kids (http://www.sportstalk4kids.com) spent the day with the USA Gymnastics Team as they kicked off the 40-city Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastics Champions. Members of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team, including the Fierce Five and 2008 Olympic all-around gold medalist Nastia Liukin headline the tour. Nick spoke with medalists from the 2012 London Olympics, including gold medalist Gabby Douglas, Jordyn Wieber, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, and Kyla Ross. Olympians Jonathan Horton, Jake Dalton, and John Orozco also took time out of their training to talk to Nick about what it was like to represent the United States in the 2012 Olympic Games. Douglas talked about inspiring a nation; Wieber described the pride she felt in representing her country and the joy of receiving a gold medal; McKayla spoke about the "Fierce Five" phenomenon; Raisman reflected on the honor being named Captain of the team; and Ross explained how gymnastics has evolved and gymnasts continue to push the limits. Horton, a two-time Olympian, discussed what it means to him to make it to another Games.
