The chat can be accessed through the McDonald's Web site, www.mcdonalds.com, as well as through Hill's site, www.granthill.com.


Hill, a gold medalist at the 1996 Olympics, will answer questions from fans and offer tips on becoming an Olympic athlete. McDonald's will host chats before and throughout the Olympics. In addition to his athletic credentials, Hill is also a McDonald's spokesman.
