Picture this: Kentucky students learning physical fitness from Olympic athletes.

It's happening this week at Centre College in Danville. The Maximum Velocity Track and Field Academy teaches students proper techniques for various athletic events. Several former olympic athletes are there, including world-record holder Jackie Joyner-Kersee, who's impressed with the event, and with Centre College.

"I think it's a hidden jewel. I think this college is very impressive, and it's great to have young people who have never even been on a college campus to really experience college campus life," Joyner-Kersee told ABC 36 News.

This is the second year for the camp.
