Olympian Khatuna Loring Poses as Katniss
The 2012 London Olympics have millions of viewers riveted to their televisions, with the networks attempting to shine the spotlight on just about every sport involved in the Games (although not all make it to primetime). But it was The Hunger Games that actually helped thrust one often-ignored Olympic sport into the spotlight. Archery has increased in popularity with the release of The Hunger Games film, and in fact it was Team USA member Khatuna Loring who taught Jennifer Lawrence to handle a bow and arrow for the film.
In support of both the Olympics and the August 18, 2012 release of The Hunger Games on Blu-ray and DVD, Lionsgate’s released this photo of Lorig posing as Katniss Everdeen. Lorig’s pictured wearing a replica jacker from The Hunger Games as well as a mockingjay pin.
