Reddit is hosting Ask Me Anything (AMA) events every Tuesday with U.S. Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls through the spring leading up to the Tokyo Games this summer.

Each AMA will be here at 1 p.m. ET.

It’s a chance for fans and Olympic followers to ask the nation’s top athletes about their events and their preparations for the world’s biggest sporting event.

Allyson Felix, the most decorated female Olympic track and field champion with nine medals and six golds, kicked off the series in January. Also among the headliners: Rio triple gold medalist backstroker Ryan Murphy and water polo gold medalists Ashleigh Johnson and Maggie Steffens.

Reddit hosted its first Olympic AMA series leading up to the PyeongChang Winter Games, featuring figure skater Adam Rippon, hockey player Hilary Knight and cross-country skier Jessie Diggins, among others.

Check back here for times and links as they become available as each athlete’s AMA gets closer.
