Yesterday, May 4th 2022, the 2020 Tokyo Olympians and Paralympians gathered at the White House. This was the first visit to the White House from Olympians and Paralympians since 2018 as well as the first visit under the Biden administration.
This also was the first time that both Winter and Summer Olympians and Paralympians gathered in Washington D.C. at the same time. This is due to the delay of the 2020 Tokyo events from COVID-19.
Based on the Instagram content, the athletes attended a celebration the night of May 3rd and then toured the White House and spent time on the White House lawn on May 4th.

And Katie Ledecky must first learn to lie if she wants the job of press secretary. 😆
Claire definitely runs a meme page on the low

Too bad Cody Miller didn’t go to Tokyo. The vlog on this event would have been epic.
too bad for the 2021 olympians who didn’t take this opportunity.
I’m no expert but I’m pretty sure there are strict regulations for filming and posting videos of the area
This would never happen in North Korea
What a great experience! Very cool seeing these athletes get to visit the White House!
New York Breakers Twitter account is NOT happy right now 😡
I was wondering about that. Great pictures everywhere but I was shocked to see Michael Andrew. Kudos to him for attending.
No matter your political views, if you are representing the USA you should be there.
Also when are you ever going to get to tour the White House again? Great opportunity if you happen to be a big history buff.
lol. That’s not what people say when Russian Olympians visited Kremlin.
A lot of athletes denied the opportunity when President T was in office
