The Time I Met Olympic Gold Medalist Jade Carey by Jake M

I don’t know how many people can say they met an Olympic Gold Medalist, but I can. It was a really cool experience that I won’t forget. The Gold Medalist’s name is Jade Carey. She is a gymnast representing the United States and she’s from Arizona. She was a very nice person to meet. I am going to tell you my experience meeting her.

As some of you might already know, I am an employee for the Arizona Diamondbacks. During the different games, the Diamondbacks have ceremonial first pitches, and during an August home game, they had Olympic Gold Medalist Jade Carey throw out the first pitch. I was working my shift that night. During my shift, I decided to go to the spot where Jade was sitting so that I could meet her. I introduced myself and told her that I work for the team. I told her I was impressed with her cartwheel that she performed in the process of throwing out the first pitch. Then I told her she did a good job at the Olympics, and that it was cool having a Gold Medalist that is a resident of Phoenix. After that, I went back to work.

Later in the game, after I finished working, I asked if I could have a picture with her. She said yes. So my mom took a picture of me with Jade. It was a really cool experience all around. It’s a good bonus of working for the Diamondbacks because you never know who you’ll meet.
