American Olympic Athletes in Birmingham

America's athletics team say they've enjoyed their stay in Birmingham ahead of the Olympics.

They set up a training base at the Alexander Stadium in Perry Barr and held an open training session so local school children could watch.

Heart's Rob Mayor went along to chat to some of the athletes.

 

Birmingham Museum has been decorated in the colours of USA and Jamaica to honor the Olympic teams training there.
