School Reporters from Birmingham meet members of the USA athletics team at Alexandra Stadium.
Students from Holyhead School, Bartley Green School and St John Wall Catholic School travelled to Alexandra Stadium in Birmingham to Team USA, in the city for Olympics preparation
Preparation is the key for Jasmine and Arshpreet as they get ready for duty for School Report
School Reporters put their interview skills into practice as they 'vox pop' some of the students who came along to the event
The team spoke to hurdler Michael Tinsley, who told them that it was tough to get onto the team but "now it's my turn and I'm really honoured".
The team then went trackside to speak to pole vaulter Brad Walker and Michael Tinsley
The team interviewed both athletes. Arshpreet said: "It was a bit nerve-racking but really good. It's a great experience, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
After the girls interviewed Michael Tinsley, local media interviewed the School Report team to find out what it was like

A special memento - Michael Tinsley gave School Reporters his special autograph. Good luck Michael at the Olympics and the rest of the American team!
