Presidential Conversations

9 May

In early April, members of the 2014 U.S. Olympic Team headed to the nation’s most famous address, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, to meet with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. In addition to the responses seen in SKATING magazine, here are how the conversations went for Nathan Bartholomay and Marissa Castelli.

Nathan Bartholomay:

POTUS: Nathan, it is an honor to have you here.

N: It’s a privilege to be here sir. Truly an honor.

P: My wife and I are very busy but we did get to see some of the figure skating, we are so proud of you and Felicia.

N: Wow thank you sir, I can’t tell you what that means coming from you!

P: Thank you for representing your country so well at the Olympics.

“Short and sweet”

Marissa Castelli

“I talked to Obama about my medal,” Castelli said. “He touched the medal and said ‘that’s so heavy, I am star-struck'”

“Then I saw Michelle (Obama) and she said ‘Oh, you’re a pair skater!’ Castelli added. “We then went on to talk about trusting your partner and how she would never be able to do it.”

“It was a fun conversation.”
