David Beckham Preps For the Olympics With Michelle Obama
David Beckham kept up his busy pre-Olympics schedule this morning at a special event with First Lady Michelle Obama. David suited up to visit Winfield House in London, where the first lady hosted a Let's Move! event with some youngsters. After a soccer demonstration, David posed for pictures with some excited-looking US athletes. It was Michelle's second photo op of the day, as she earlier welcomed Team USA members at a ceremony in East London.
Since arriving in the UK yesterday morning, David has been highly scheduled. He took a meeting at 10 Downing Street with Prime Minister David Cameron, then lunched with wife Victoria and their daughter, Harper Beckham. Tonight, David will take part in the Olympics opening ceremonies.
David's Olympic pride was evident in a piece he penned for London newspaper The Sun today. He wrote, "I have been lucky enough to have been involved in some amazing sporting moments in my career, but nothing can compare with what is about to take place in London. . . . It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. I know I am biased but, what the rest of the world will see, I don’t think any other country in the world could do it better."
