Plus, the five-time medalist tells how fans send instant messages of support to Team U.S.A. through YouTube & Facebook!

Like many of you, I grew up watching Summer Sanders help Nickelodeon’s brightest ’90s stars Figure It Out, so I couldn’t pass up the chance to get her thoughts on Nick’s recently-laughed reboot. Though the former Olympian watches the new version with her kids — their reaction is actually kind of awesome — she says she misses the original cast, which boasted such classic Nick staples as Danny Tamberelli and Lori Beth Denberg. (And don’t we all?)

But my slime-covered nostalgia aside, Summer is currently supporting Duracell’s Virtual Stadium, a genius new project that allows anyone addicted to the 2012 London Olympic Games — aka everybody — to send personal support messages to U.S. competitors using Facebook and YouTube.
