“Jonny Moseley Down Under” Sydney 2000 Olympic Games
During the summer of 2000 NBC Sports asked “What do you do with a Winter Olympic Gold Medalist who has full credential access to the Summer Olympics and nothing to do?” The answer: ‘Jonny Moseley Down Under’ at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. For 17 days Christy produced a daily segment for NBCOlympics.com featuring Jonny Moseley’s all access tour of Sydney and the Olympic venues. America’s decorated mogul skier was captured attempting to boogie board at the canoe/kayak course, getting up close with the Olympic cauldron on a blimp and hobnobbing with Prince Albert at American track star Michael Johnson’s Hard Rock Café birthday party. The highlight of the segments; Christy and her team exclusively capturing USA weightlifter Tara Nott receiving the call that her silver medal had turned to gold. There was cheering, hugging and Jonny diving into Sydney Harbour to commemorate the moment. From an Olympic gold medal to meeting royalty, Christy captured the ultimate Olympic experience. It was easily the best ‘job’ at the Sydney Games.
