OK, the Olympic News is coming fast and furious now. In an effort to not make you scroll down through 6 feet of news in a day, we’ll post the links to some articles here.
But first, I’d like to take a moment to say Congratulations to the hometown athletes from the Lake Tahoe Basin who made the Olympic Team (and I hope I didn’t miss anyone, if so, my apologies): Daron Rahlves (ski cross), Shannon Bahrke (moguls), Julia Mancuso and Marco Sullivan (Alpine skiing), Elena Hight (halfpipe), and Nate Holland (SBX) *Thumbs Up* and All the Best in Vancouver!
For a list of the US Olympic Team to date, go to this link:

…and Katherine, LOVE the pink shoes!)
Katherine Reutter is an American short track speedskater who is the U.S. national champion and a gold-medal winner at the World Cup. But she’s now probably best-known to most Americans (who don’t typically keep up with Winter sports except during the Winter Olympics) for her appearance on The Colbert Report
