Ray Lumpp, 89, has been to the London Olympics twice.
The first time he won gold on the USA Men's Basketball team in 1948. This time he's here as a special guest of the USA Basketball team.
Lump says, "In those days we came over on the USS America and went home on the USS Washington. Today, you fly over. It's completely different."
That boat ride took 7 days in 1948. His flight here took 7 hours.
