With the Winter Olympics going on right now, at least for me, there is this touch of excitement in the air...I can't explain it. The Olympic Games, so rich in tradition, brings together the best athletes the world has to offer. And last week while shooting down in San Diego I got to spend some time with two time Olympic High Jumper, Jamie Nieto. Jamie competed in the '04 Athens Games as well as the last Summer Games in London, and he definitely brought his Olympic Spirit with him. We casted Jamie because of his 6' 4.5" frame and his personality measured up, he kept the shoot loose and coached along our two other younger models. Needless to say we finished off the studio day at the top of the podium.
You can check out Jamie's charisma in his weekly web series "Holla Atcha Boy" where he sheds some light on current and former track and field athletes.
