Olympian!

With a win in the first trials race, and a strong finish among tough conditions in the second race, my Olympic trials are over. Late last night, I was named to the US Olympic Team for 2010, and could not be more excited for the chance to represent my country in Vancouver! It's been a long journey, and a long day of travel to Rupholding, where I will race in the World Cup later this week. Please stay check back soon for a more detailed post-and thanks again to all my supporters!

Sara,

Congratulations on making the team.

It's great to hear about Dartmouth grads going for the gold. I read about you in today's Speaking of Dartmouth - http://speakingof.dartmouth.edu/

Best wishes at the Olympics! Just remember the green ring is for Dartmouth grads! :-)
