For the next 23 days, AP video journalist Lila Ibrahim and professional snowboarder and “The Bachelorette” winner Jesse Csincsak will co-host “Beyond The Medal” — a new show offering fans of the Olympics a behind-the-scenes look at the games and the host cities of Vancouver and Whistler.
From bungee jumping to whale watching and everything in between, the goal is to bring you a small taste of what it’s like to be here for the 2010 Winter Games. Start every morning with us to get the latest news, check in with the athletes and find out what celebrities are in town for the games.
In tomorrow’s debut show we go north to take you on a walking tour of Whistler, where Jesse and I got to do a lot of outdoor sports for upcoming shows. I will tell you right now — I have nothing on my co-host when it comes to athletic ability. To wrap up our first show, we’ll bring you back to the Granville Room in downtown Vancouver for a taste of Olympic-themed cocktails.
Visit AP’s Winter Games Network Monday at 7 a.m. EST to watch our debut show. Enjoy!
