Olympians Kimmie Meissner and Pat Winslow Connolly visit Pinewood

Olympic athletes Kimmie Meissner and Pat Winslow Connolly visited Pinewood Elementary School on April 16, and Rowdy Gaines, an Olympic swimmer who currently commentates on the sport, spoke to students via Skype.

Meissner, a world champion figure skater and 2006 Olympian, and Connolly, a three-time track and field Olympian, visited the school as part of a 100-day countdown to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in London.

Connolly is a women's sports advocate and has been outspoken about steroid abuse in sports. Her husband, the late Harold Connolly, was a gold medalist in the hammer throw.
