Olympic athletes get their White House moment

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House is getting an Olympic-sized boost of energy as members of the 2014 Olympic and Paralympic teams from Sochi get their moment at the executive mansion.

The team members took an insider's tour of the mansion and the grounds on Thursday before they were scheduled to get an official East Room welcome from President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.

Slopestyle snowboarding gold medalist Sage Kotsenburg wound up carrying around a bouquet of vegetables from the kitchen garden on the South Lawn, made up of broccoli and other good things. But he wasn't quite sure what to make of that.

Women's hockey player Julie Chu helped him out, explaining to reporters that the vegetables show the importance of healthy eating for top athletes.
