Yesterday's race was tough to swallow. I prepared well and I was motivated and excited to give my best. Unfortunately, my best was not good enough yesterday and I have to live with that. Super proud of the boys (@hipsterikal & @twphilp) for throwing down some stellar runs and spending some time in the leader box! Thank you to everyone back home for tuning in and sending your support!
Today we had our first and only day off snow while in Korea. Very refreshing to get outside the bubble for a few hours and check out the coastal offerings. A couple more days before we're back at it for Slalom!🤘
February is Black History Month. Today, we spotlight Jesse Owens (1913-1980), an American track and field athlete who made sporting history when at the 1936 Berlin Games, he won 4 gold medals in the 100m, 200m, 4x100m relay, and the long jump, much to the annoyance of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party who hoped the Olympics would be a showcase for Aryan supremacy. Instead, Owens’ achievements led the people of Berlin to hail him, an African American, as a hero. Owens also managed to break or equal nine Olympic records and set three world records. In his later life, he became a goodwill ambassador for America and athletics. We honor Jesse James. #olympics#athlete#blackhistory#trackandfield#gold#hero#goals#boss#DPSCD#nobleknights
