FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- Two gold medal Olympians visited the Summit City Thursday evening to help a group of local children their world renowned volleyball skills.

Three-time Olympic gold medalist, Kerri Walsh, and 2008 gold medalist, Todd Rogers were at SportONE/Parkview Fieldhouse Thursday to teach the younger generations some of the keys to their craft.

Over 100 children attended and Walsh was excited to see them taking the sport education seriously. Walsh believes that children learn a lot when involved in a team atmosphere like how their actions affect others.

Walsh encourages the children to chase a dream and appreciate the people that are in their lives that will help them reach their goals.

It wasn't all about Walsh teaching the kids, according to the Olympian the kids help remind her why she loves the sport so much.
