B/R Interview: Olympians Lindsey Jacobellis, Seth Wescott, Julia Mancuso Hit NYC

It's not every day that you get to sit down to chat with an Olympian, let alone a dozen of them. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to talk with some of the biggest names on the Team USA roster from Vancouver as the stars were in town for the 43rd Annual New York Ski and Snowboard Ball and Olympic Celebration.

Julia Mancuso, Lindsey Jacobellis and Shannon Bahrke headlined the women, while Seth Wescott, Bode Miller and Bill Demong led the male contingent.

More than 20 Olympians—with a combined collection of over 30 medals—were invited to the Raika Studio salon courtesy of Paul Mitchell for a hair and styling session before being swept off to the ball and red carpet.

Chatting to these athletes over a coffee and a haircut, I learned about everything from life as an Olympian and the importance of sponsorship to starting your own coffee company and the best places to fish in the Adirondacks.

From the salon to the ball, here are some of my photos and interviews with the Olympians.
