On October 29th, 2013, the US Olympic Committee began their 100 day countdown to the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. 56 Olympians, Paralympians, and 2014 hopefuls gathered in New York’s Times Square to kick of the nationwide Road to Sochi Tour. The event included athletic demonstrations, autograph sessions, and interactive sports for fans to try. BreakThruTV’s Lauren Hawker spoke with athletes at the event as well as LGBT rights activists who were there to call for a boycott of the games in show of their disapproval of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s anti-gay laws.
Featured song: “Dannyboy” by Youngblood Hawke
