E ver wonder what it’s like to be an athlete at the Olympics? How’s the food? What are the rooms like in the Olympic Village? How exactly do you stay focused with so much other stuff going on? U.S. snowboarder Jamie Anderson used her smartphone to go behind the scenes of the PyeongChang Games in an attempt to answer some of those questions. The two-time Olympian also gave her impressions of the opening ceremony and the venues, took a field trip beyond the athletes’ village, and shared her reaction to winning silver and gold medals. The result is a one-of-a-kind glimpse into the life of an Olympic champion — and a 27-year-old tourist with an eye for detail.
