Tough Training

July 27, 2012

The Navy is known for its tough training programs – and the Navy SEALs are among the toughest. This year’s U.S. Olympic sailing team received part of its pre-Olympics preps from the SEALs.

As the opening ceremonies begin tonight, think about those Navy trained Olympians.
