The Winter Olympics are underway, and I’ll try to post stories about athletes throughout the Olympics. I LOVE the Olympics, particularly the Winter Games. The first time I ever went skiing was at Lake Tahoe, and by accident, I skied the Giant Slalom run from the Winter Olympics there about thirty minutes after learning how to ski. Go big, or go home, right? (P.S. I was done skiing for the day after that particular run…)
Hannah Kearney (pictured below) won the first U.S. gold medal of this year’s Games competing in Women’s moguls. Hannah finished 22nd in the moguls in 2006 and came back this year, winning gold and defeating the Candian favorite Jennifer Heil.
