Several Olympic athletes are using digital avenues to help their sport during the shutdown.

While Zoom sessions are a frequent choice, some athletes are offering training tips on Instagram and Olympic federations are pitching in with newsletters and other web-based help.

USA Water Polo has been sending out a weekly newsletter called “At Home with USA Water Polo” featuring interviews with coaches and athletes.

U.S. Rowing has been holding webinars for its members.

USA Volleyball has a page on its website with COVID-19-related resources.
