‘Hunger Games’ Gets Assist From Olympian

Jennifer Lawrence in a scene from 'The Hunger Games'

Archer Khatuna Lorig has competed in four Olympics and is currently preparing for this year’s Olympic trials. But last year she found a new experience in her sport: She taught an Oscar-nominated actress how to shoot. Lorig coached Jennifer Lawrence, the star of the upcoming “Hunger Games” blockbuster, over 15 hour-long sessions in California. When they met, Lawrence (pictured) told her instructor about her role and recommended that she read the trilogy. “It was very addictive,” Lorig said. After their third practice, Lorig asked her son to Google the actress and learned of the 21-year-old Lawrence’s film career. Lorig, a 1992 Olympics bronze medalist, said she did have one thing in common with her celebrity student: “She travels a lot for work. I travel for work. On a lot of subjects, we were on the same page.”
