Olympians have to get creative to train these days. Enter Seth MacFarlane, Tiktok star Alex Presley and the Quarantine Olympics.
Olympic medalists Mikaela Shiffrin (Alpine skiing), Steele Johnson (diving) and Brittany Bowe (speed skating) appeared on “The At-Home Variety Show” hosted by MacFarlane on Peacock, NBC Universal’s new streaming service.
From their separate homes, the athletes competed against Presley in the Sock Slide Challenge, seeing who could cover the farthest stretch of floor on a single sock slide. NBC Olympics primetime host Mike Tirico offered play-by-play.
