THE GOLD MEDAL-WINNING U.S. WOMEN’S OLYMPIC GYMNASTICS TEAM TALKS ABOUT OTHER OLYMPIC SPORTS THEY MIGHT LIKE TO TRY WHEN THEY VISIT CBS’ “LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN,”
TUESDAY, AUGUST 14
If they weren’t gold medal-winning gymnasts, what Olympic sports would the “Fierce Five” U.S. Women’s Olympic Gymnastics team want to try? David Letterman asks that question of Gabby Douglas, Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney, Jordyn Wieber and Kyla Ross when the entire team visits the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, Tuesday, Aug. 14.
Letterman: “When you’re at the Olympics, do you look at other events and think, ‘Ooh, wow, why didn’t I choose that one?’ …What would you have chosen?”
Gabby Douglas: “Track, yeah.”
Letterman: “Any specific event?”
Douglas: “I would face Usain [Bolt].”
Letterman (jokes): “He could carry you in his pocket. And what about you, anything?”
Aly Raisman: “Pole vaulting.”
Letterman: “Pole vaulting, there you go.”
McKayla Maroney: “Probably volleyball because I’m just that tall…No, I think I’d want to try diving.”
Letterman: “Diving. And Jordyn?”
Jordyn Wieber: “I think the long jump in track.”
Letterman: “Have you ever tried it?”
Wieber: “No, but my mom actually did it in college, so I think, yeah.”
Letterman: “You always get sand in your pants with that…Kyla, anything else appeal to you?”
Kyla Ross: “I think beach volleyball would be really fun.”
Letterman (jokes): “Beach volleyball, same problem there.”
Letterman then handed a rose to each of the five women at the end of the interview. The “Fierce Five’s” entire interview can be seen on the LATE SHOW tonight (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
Also visiting the LATE SHOW tonight are actress Jennifer Garner and musical guest Rodriguez.
