Local kids get first taste of Olympic sports at youth clinics

Kids from the local community centers and Park & Rec summer camps had an opportunity for an Olympic experience. Olympic gold medalist Brandon Slay lights the cauldron during Olympic Day at the Olympic Training Center on Tuesday, June 25, 2013. After the opening ceremony, the kids attended clinics to learn about boxing, judo, sitting volleyball, weightlifting and wrestling. Slay won a gold medal in freestyle wrestling in 2000.
