International Olympic Day Celebration 2017
International Olympic Day is a chance to celebrate the spirit of the modern Olympic games and gain insight into the athletes' experiences. On June 21, we were joined for a conversation with five of America's greatest Olympic ambassadors. Olympic swimmer, Hall of Fame inductee and Pasadena resident John Naber moderated a panel of fellow Olympians John Moffet (1980, ’84, swimming), Ron Skarin ('72, '76, track Cycling) and, to talk about the upcoming 2018 Olympic Winter Games, figure skaters Tai Babilonia ('80) and Peter Carruthers ('84).
We were joined at a hosted reception with complimentary refreshments and the opportunity to view Olympic trading pins before the conversation. The Olympians were also available for photos and autographs following the conversation.
