Team USA athletes often bring home the gold, but they are more than just their sport. Us Weekly chatted with a number of athletes — wrestler Jordan Burroughs, sprinter Allyson Felix, water polo player Tony Azevedo, paratriathlete Melissa Stockwell, golfer Lexi Thompson and marathoner Meb Keflezighi — to find out what we don’t know about them.
Felix, a Bounty-sponsored athlete, shared her secret talent with Us: “I do have some hula-hooping skills,” she says in the video above. “It’s kind of like a little hidden talent.”
Burroughs, a Hershey’s athlete who will defend his 2012 wrestling gold this month, admitted he likes to sing in the shower (and even demonstrated it forUs!). But no athlete could beat Azevedo’s secret talent: doing the worm, which he demonstrated for Us.
Keflezighi, who works with KT Tape, shared his celebrity crush: Brandy. “In high school I had a crush on Brandy the singer,” says the 41-year-old. “I thought she was hot!”
Thompson laughed as she shared her crush.
“Probably Channing Tatum,” says the Red Bull–sponsored athlete. “Magic Mike, that’s definitely a good one!”
The athletes also shared their guilty-pleasure foods. Stockwell, who is sponsored by Chobani and is heading into her second Paralympics, shared her love of candy.
“Some sort of Gummis — Gummi bears, Gummi worms — anything chocolate,” the mom of son Dallas, 21 months, said.
