In this exclusive CelebLove TV video, Sanders fills us in on how each and every one of us can use Duracell's Virtual Stadium at Facebook.com/duracell to send our personal videos, messages and texts to our favorite Olympians.

She also shares her and her husband, former Olympic skier Erik Schlopy's love for the games and how they are instilling that drive in their children, Skye, 6, and Robert, 4.

"All I hope for my kids is that they find something that they love and are passionate about and they give it everything they have," Sanders says. "I'm not going to lie, I do hope they find a sport and learn everything about life through it ... and I hope I get to be there every step of the way to cheer them on."
