ATLANTA (AP) — Four award-winning U.S. Olympians will team up with the Boys & Girls Club for an event to motivate youth to live healthy through physical activity.
Olympians from retired gymnast Dominique Dawes, boxer Evander Holyfield, and track & field athletes Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Gail Devers will take part in an event called the Triple Play program.
The event will be held on July 14 at Piedmont Park in downtown Atlanta.
More than 200 youth from the ages of 6-18 are expected to receive coaching and interactive lessons to help them understand how sports and physical fitness can better their livelihood.
The event will feature Olympic-themed stations including gymnastics floor mats and balance beams, boxing bags, triple jump challenges and hurdle obstacles. Each of the Olympians will direct the training sessions.
