Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A former Olympian brings her talents to Las Vegas to teach some local kids.
Olympic Gold Medalist Natasha Kai held a soccer clinic Sunday for kids ages six to 18, at The Z Spot.
Each session lasted for an hour and focused on improving speed and quickness.
Kai played for the U.S. National Team from 2006 to 2011, and played in the Women's World Cup where the U.S. placed third. They also won a gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics.
Now, she says she's happy to pass along her passion to kids, "Being able to give back and help kids reach their goals and dreams, it's something I can home and smile about."
Kai currently lives in Las Vegas and is a full-time coach for a competitive soccer club in the area.
