Olympic Trials in Park City...I Was There!

20131229_122732_resizedThe Olympic Trials held at the Olympic Park in Park City was a stellar experience.  Not only was the weather perfect, and tons of vendor free stuff, these young athletes really put on a show.  It was close.  Really close for the women.  Only 2 small points separated 1st and 2nd place for the women and the winner received an automatic slot for the Olympic team in Sochi. Jessica Jerome edged Lindsay Van by such a small margin.  I was really proud of my community for coming out to support this historic occasion.  This is absolutely the first ever team of women ski jumpers to compete in a Winter Olympics and they are all fighting hard to be selected.  Even more astonishing is that 4 of the 5 top contenders are from Park City.  We do support our own here.  This community loves athletes and it was evident by the huge turnout Sunday.  CBS sports thought it a special occasion too by airing a 90 minute live special on this and other Utah events on Sunday. You just had to be there and I was!!!
