GOING FOR GOLD IN GRAPEVINE! BRITISH EMPORIUM PRESENTS NBC SIX-TIME OLYMPIC COMMENTATOR LEWIS JOHNSON AT 2012 LONDON OLYMPIC EVENT IN MAY!

Grapevine, Texas (April 2012) - Can't make it to London for the Summer Olympics? No need to feel left out! Make a trip to Grapevine instead! The British Emporium is hosting an in-store preview event with NBC Olympic Commentator Lewis Johnson on Tuesday, May 15th, 7 p.m. as their special guest. Mr. Johnson, who will be traveling to London to cover the Games, will give everyone a special behind-the-scenes look at the Olympics, followed by a question and answer session, autographs and photo opportunities.
Complimentary English tea and refreshments will be provided. Commemorative souvenirs and themed items will be available for sale.
According to Mr. Johnson, "This is a very exciting time of the year, as we approach the Games of the 30th Olympiad in London. Having covered every summer and winter Olympics since Sydney back in 2000, I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone at the British Emporium in historic downtown Grapevine, Texas to share some of my inside stories of triumph & tragedy from those past Games, and chat about what you can expect to see later this summer. Bring all your questions and let's just have a great time visiting in London's ‘foreign office' in Texas, the British Emporium!"
Sheela Kadam, co-owner of The British Emporium added, "Mr. Johnson is such a dynamic and inspirational speaker. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience his great passion and personal experiences of the Olympics. We're all so proud that London is hosting the Olympics this summer, and we're delighted to bring a 'Brit' of that excitement to historic Grapevine!"
Lewis Johnson is a sought-after public speaker and his unique behind the scenes stories inspire and challenge everyone to "discover and live their dreams like an Olympian!" He has had the privilege of meeting and getting to know many great Olympians since his first experience at the games in Sydney, Australia in 2000. The Lewis Johnson Media Group, LLC was recently created to centralize Johnson's other passions and business endeavors. For more information, contact lbjtv@mac.com.
