Every White House has the privilege of hosting some world class athletes. Every President gets an opportunity to welcome Super Bowl champions, winners of the NBA Finals, and other professional and collegiate athletes at the top of their games.
But every once in a while, the White House hosts a group of champions who represent us all -- Team USA.
Last week, more than 400 Olympians and Paralympians gathered at the White House for an event to celebrate their success in this year's London Games.
We put together a video that takes you behind the scenes and lets you hear from the athletes as they describe their visit. Check it out here: We also sat down with one extraordinary athlete -- Lieutenant Brad Snyder -- as he met with First Lady Michelle Obama.
Lieutenant Snyder is a veteran of the U.S. Navy. Exactly one year after he was blinded by an improvised explosive device while on duty in Afghanistan, he won gold in the 400-meter freestyle in the London Paralympics, finishing nearly six seconds ahead of the next closest competitor.
