San Jose leaders thanked the U.S. Olympic Committee Tuesday for allowing the city to play a part in this summer's games in Beijing.

San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed gathered with other officials to raise the Olympic flag over the city.

The event held in honor of San Jose State University being chosen as the official processing center for the U.S. Olympic team.

Athletes will spend at least two days at the university to train and prepare for the games before heading to China in August.
