There are Olympians in our midst…the USA 2016 Olympic Rowing Team has been chosen (they train here in Princeton, NJ!) and now’s your chance to meet Olympic athletes before they head to Rio for their try for the gold at the 2016 Summer Olympics. TOMORROW, Wednesday June 22, head to Whole Foods Market to meet members of the 2016 United States Olympic Rowing Team. That’s right, do your shopping and have a chance to talk to a real, live Olympian. Shopping is a chore, and often a bore….tomorrow is a brand new day. When was the last time you had a chance to meet Olympic athletes?
Members of the Women’s 8+ (reigning World and Olympic Champions) will be on hand from 12 – 12:30 pm signing autographs and taking photos. These ladies are forces to be reckoned with, many of them towering over 6 feet and fit as a fiddle. Matt Miller from the very fast USA Men’s 4- will be there from 3-5 pm. Other athletes will be there throughout the day for a meet and greet. Rowing ergs will also be on hand for you to try. Come down and see these superstars – don’t forget your camera!! It’s a fantastic opportunity to bring your kids, get a few photos and meet some of the athletes you will be cheering for when the US Team hits the water at the 2016 Summer Olympics – Rowing events taking place between August 6-14, 2016.
EVEN BETTER NEWS:
Tomorrow when you shop at Whole Foods Princeton, 5% of your purchase will go to support these amazing local athletes. How cool is that!
