An athlete who has been training under Missy Cann in Cherry Point,
Sebastien Konan already knows what it feels like to be in the games.

In 2000 he was in the Olympics and finished in fourth place In Tae Kwon Do.

But this year he's getting another chance and this time he hopes to go into unknown territory...winning the gold in the sport.

A Greenville native, Charlie Ogletree, is a master at manning the sail.

He will be competing in his fourth straight Olympic games.
