PICTURES: Going to the Charity Stripe for the Olympics

March 16, 2011

Lawmakers and aides gave new meaning to the phrase “going for the gold” on Wednesday afternoon, teaming up with Olympic and Paralympic athletes at a free-throw contest on Capitol Hill sponsored by the U.S. Olympic Committee and its supporters in Congress.

After a sweat-dripping competition, winners were awarded gold, silver, and bronze medals. A team from the office of Rep. John Carney, D-Del., took the gold.
