President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama are ringing in the start of the 2015 Special Olympics in Los Angeles, but they're definitely not the only ones taking part in the ceremonies. Celebrities from different walks of life—some former professional athletes, others entertainers, and even former Olympians—are all gathering to see the participants give it their all.
