American 16-year-old Ariel Hsing was tickled about reaching the second round in table tennis on Saturday. But meeting Michelle Obama on Friday might have been even better.

"She was really nice," the Californian said of the first lady. "She gave me a hug and we took pictures."

Hsing says she also mugged for photo with Michael Phelps and Kobe Bryant. But meeting Michelle Obama was "the biggest." lAnd, of course, the food.

"The Olympics village is so cool. There is so much food there, which I really like." Spoken like a true teenager.
