First lady Michelle Obama and a handful of star athletes spent Thursday morning at a Subway sandwich shop near the White House as the restaurant chain announced a three-year collaboration with the Partnership for a Healthier America.

Gold-medal Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps was spotted getting a pat-down before entering the restaurant before the event. Former gymnast and Olympic gold medalist Nastia Liukin and Justin Tuck of the New York Giants were also in attendance.

PHA is an independent group that works in conjunction with Obama's official "Let's Move" initiative to combat childhood obesity. More details about the event are coming soon on She the People.

PostTV's Casey Capachi produced the video.

Sanders’s claim that Clinton objected to meeting with ‘our enemies’
Sanders said that Clinton was critical of Obama in 2008 for suggesting meeting with Iran. In fact, Clinton and Obama differed over whether to set preconditions, not about meeting with enemies. Once in office, Obama followed the course suggested by Clinton, abandoning an earlier position as unrealistic.
