First Olympic Announcement: Alpine Skiing

Our first announcement for the Olympic Reading Challenge was from Emma M. in sixth grade.  She shared with us details about the equipment used in alpine skiing.  We also heard about several famous skiers to watch for at the Olympics later this week, including Ted Ligety!  In 2010, Ted came in 5th in the super-combined race.  Also look for Bode Miller (who won GOLD in 2010 for the super combined!) and Jacqueline Wiles.  Jackie is a high school student from Oregon, and this is her first Olympics.
