    If you’ve ever wondered what the life of an Olympic athlete is like, we’re getting a glimpse into their daily life that hasn’t been as available in past summer games.

    With the explosion of social media, this will be the most connected Olympic Games in history as the athletes share their journey with the world.

    Dozens of athletes who are in London, representing the United States, are from San Diego or train here at the Chula Vista Olympic Training Center and they’re sharing their experience online.
