Olympic Athletes Get Schooled In London Slang And Local Trivia [VIDEOS]
Team USA is saying “Thank you Britain” in a new campaign to give back to the host nation for this year’s Olympic Games. The U.S. Olympic Committee is helping to raise funds and awareness for Kids Company, an organization that benefits disadvantaged children in London. As a part of the promotion for the campaign, a series of videos featuring American athletes have been released.

In these last two videos the athletes share what they know already about the host country and what they hope to experience.
