Olympians Nunn, Michta to appear on Today Show

LONDON – 2012 Olympic team members John Nunn (San Diego, Calif.) and Maria Michta (Nesconset, N.Y.) will appear in a segment on the Today Show Monday morning where they educate the anchors on the particulars of the race walk and help the anchors prepare for their own race.

Nunn and Michta spent a few hours on Saturday with the entire London cast of the Today show including Al Roker, Matt Lauer, Ryan Seacrest, Meredith Vieira, Natalie Morales and Savannah Guthrie. Nunn and Michta fielded questions from the anchors, demonstrated the proper race walking technique and had fun teaching the anchors how to race walk.

Nunn will compete in the 50 km, and Michta will compete in the 20 km race walk on August 11.
