On July 11, from 12 – 5 p.m. ET, the United States Olympic Committee will engage in the age-old tradition of sending off our athletes to the Olympic Games. This year we are excited to bring our tradition into the digital era with a sendoff including live athlete chats on Facebook, live athlete Q&A sessions on Twitter, and editorial content on TeamUSA.org.

Please join the athletes of Team USA for the live chats listed below, where you can send them your well-wishes before they head over to the London 2012 Olympic Games. Throughout the day, you can tweet to the @USOlympic handle or use the hashtag #GoTeamUSA and the USOC and athletes will retweet your messages.
