Olympic gold medalist Seth Wescott will be among a contingent of U.S. Olympians to meet President Obama on Wednesday at the White House.

Wescott, who struck gold for a second time in snowboardcross in Vancouver this winter, has been on a snowboarding trip in Alaska since last month.

He left Monday to travel to the nation’s capitol. Details of the visit have not yet been released, but the president’s address to the athletes will air at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Team USA website.

Wescott will head back to Alaska following the visit, then return to Washington, D.C., to be a guest of USA Today at the White House Correspondents dinner on May 1.
