What do you get when two Olympic swimmers decide to retire? A partnership aimed at helping young athletes take their training to the next level. Six-time Olympic medalist (3 gold, 3 silver) Rebecca Soni and world record holder (and KING 5 correspondent during the Winter Olympics in Sochi) Ariana Kukors have been traveling the West Coast, crashing practices and spreading the power of mental training as part of their new business, Atlas Ventures.

Ariana and Rebecca joined guest host Kim Holcomb to chat more about what inspired them to launch Atlas Ventures and set off on a road trip to motivate and inspire young athletes, using lessons they learned during their stellar competitive careers.

Ariana and Rebecca are holding two workshops this weekend for young athletes from any sport: Saturday, April 12, from 1:00 - 3:00pm and Sunday, April 13, from 10:00am - Noon at Sand Point Country Club (8333 55th Ave. NE, Seattle 98115).
