The World Financial Group-sponsored USA Luge Olympic team visited Washington, D.C. on April 22. And, like any tourist, the team members visited the United States Capitol, Arlington National Cemetery, the Washington Monument and the Smithsonian Institute. But when they visited the White House, the team got to meet President Barack Obama and the First Lady, Michelle Obama. The meeting was made possible by former USA Luge team member Richard Kolko, now a special agent with the FBI.
