Returning Olympic Champions Look Towards Adding More Medals In London
In NYC Times Square, the United States Olympic Committee announced the launch of Raise our Flag, an exciting and innovative new program that gives every American the chance to support US Olympic and Paralympic athletes by contributing a stitch to the American flag that will accompany the U.S. Olympic Team to the London 2012 Olympic Games this summer. Olympic champions Carl Lewis, Greg Louganis and Shannon Miller were on stage to welcome in the new program.
Elsewhere, several decorated US Olympian medalists who are preparing to return to Olympic competition in London gave their thoughts on the 100 Day countdown:
Sona Richard Ross (Track & Field)
Cullen Jones (Swimming)
Christie Rampone (US Women's Soccer)
