Kevin Love Brings Olympic Spirit to Disney Games
August 10, 2012
Kids from all over the country will come together for Disney's first ever TRYathlon premiering Monday, August 13 on Disney XD, and the young competitors receive a visit from a very special member of Team USA.
Olympic star/NBA player Kevin Love lends his basketball skills to the games, offering advice and tips on how to come out on top.
Joining the Minnesota Timberwolves player are NFL star Arian Foster and WNBA/Women's Olympic Basketball Team star Candace Parker. The three will pair up with Disney XD stars Leo Howard, Olivia Holt, Billy Unger, Spencer Boldman, Doc Shaw and Adam Hicks plus real-life fans to compete in a series of sports challenges.
"I was really moved to be a part of this Disney TRYathlon in an effort to encourage kids worldwide to live active lives," said Foster who expressed his excitement for the opportunity to motivate the pint-sized athletes. "I really enjoyed myself and I hope we inspire someone out there."
