Watch How Bryce Wettstein Milks It with The Next Olympic Hopeful Participants
We asked epic skateboarder Bryce Wettstein to drop in on The Next Olympic Hopeful at the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Training Center in Colorado Springs to check out what it takes to compete in a new sport. The Next Olympic Hopeful participants, 50 top-notch athletes from across the country, were at the USOPTC to compete in athletic skills tests and drills. The goal? Earn a chance to train with one of those National Governing Bodies (including USA Rugby, USA Weightlifting and more) – and potentially earn a spot on Team USA.
Bryce, a member of the U.S. Skateboard team is working hard to represent Team USA when skateboarding makes its debut at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. She got a taste of what it’s like to train as a member of Team USA when she spent the day with some Next Olympic Hopeful athletes. Bryce ran tough drills in different disciplines, met Team USA athletes and even got advice from eight-time U.S. Olympic Medalist Apolo Ohno.
She trades McTwists and tailslides for the cool runnings of bobsledding and what it feels like to catch a rugby ball, and along the way, Bryce stays true to herself - enjoying the ride even when it gets tough.
