FYI - IBM (no, I don't work for them) as the official technology folks have
established a web site that lets you send email to the Olympic athletes.
You have the options of sending to "The 1996 Olympians", "Your favorite team",
or "A specific athlete". Now replies are not guaranteed and postings are
subject to being published on a page on that server for general viewing.
However, I did see athletes in the "surf shack" at the village reading and
replying to some of these messages. So what the heck - maybe you will get
lucky and get a personal reply. The url is
>From what I was told by the IBM guys running the area for the athletes, they
will also have the ability to put up individual web pages if they would like
to try that out. The Olympic Village is already open and the athletes are
arriving daily, so now is probably a good time to send some messages their way.
Luck of the draw for me, I am a Red Cross volunteer working as a mobile First
Responder at the Olympic Village. Its a tough job, but someone has to do
