A large contingent of Team USA's Winter Olympians made the trip to the nation's capital this week, touring the White House and its surroundings before meeting with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama on Thursday.
The president lauded the Sochi Olympians' athletic abilities before impressively dropping some tricky snowboard terms.
"Back to back, double cork 1260 -- I don't know what that means, really," Obama said. "I'm pretty sure I'm the first president to ever say that."
"I don't know how you guys do it," Michelle Obama said. "You guys do crazy things."
Here are some shots from the experience, as taken by the athletes themselves:
