A handshake? Sure. A selfie? No way.
The request came after the selfie Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz took with the president during his team's visit to the White House. The picture was later used by Samsung, the maker of the phone Ortiz used.
Slopestyle skiing bronze medalist Nick Goepper was among the Olympians visiting Obama. He said he thought about trying to sneak a selfie, but decided against it.
The White House had no immediate comment.
