First lady Michelle Obama visits US Open

It is great that the First Lady can get out and enjoy events like the US Open. She is showing our children the importance of exercise by doing it and not just talking about it. She is also showing our children that they can play any sport they want. Mrs. Obama is a great example to women of all races, ages and backgrounds.

Michelle Obama was pictured showing off her tennis skills at the US Open in New York as a part of her ‘Let’s Move’ campaign, which encourages physical activity and is against childhood obesity.

The first lady was dressed in a fitted white jacket and black workout pants while she spoke to children, and also played doubles against Serena Williams along with doing some hula-hooping during her first visit.
