His public service announcement- and one by Paralympian April Holmes- will start airing on Chicago television stations this week.
The PSAs are from a short film produced for Chicago 2016 called "Moments." They tell the personal stories of the athletes with ties to Chicago. Check out the videos.
"We thank the many Olympic and Paralympic athletes who contributed their time and stories to our new films, showing their support for our bid and reinforcing Chicago's deep ties to the Olympic Movement," said Patrick G. Ryan, chairman and CEO of Chicago 2016. "Having athletes like Michael and April appear in our PSAs reinforces the support we have from the athlete community while giving the people of Chicago a glimpse into how the Olympic Movement changed their lives."
