MILWAUKEE -- The Sochi Olympics wrapped up a few months ago, but the Pettit National Ice Center celebrated 'International Olympic Day' on Monday.

One-hundred kids from a YMCA day camp tried out curling, learned about short track speedskating and checked out skinsuits worn by actual Olympians.
Some Olympians even took time to talk to the kids.
"It's definitely a lot of fun, I've been doing these ever since the Olympics," said 2014 Olympian Emery Lehmen. "I've been going to YMCA's and elementary schools ... I love the quesions they've asked me and I love telling them my long journey."
