The Olympic Experience

Two Olympic athletes appear on Dialogue to talk about their experiences. Marcia Franklin interviews Kristin Armstrong, a member of the women's cycling team, and Tom Jager, a three-time Olympian swimmer and coach of the University of Idaho swim team.

Armstrong, 30, finished 8th in the 73.7 mile road cycling race in Athens, out of 67 competitors. Earlier this year she won the Women's Road Cycling Championship.

Jager, 40, a member of the International Swimming Hall of Fame, is the former world record holder in the 50 meter freestyle. He participated in three Olympics (1984, 1988, 1992) and is the winner of seven Olympic medals, including five gold medals. This past February he became the coach of the University of Idaho swim team.
