Less than one year out from the Winter Olympics

Only 354 days to go until the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver Canada. I love the fact that there is an Olympic Games every 2 years ! Living at the Olympic Training Center I have had the opportunity to meet many athletes, however most of them are summer games athletes. The only winter Olympic sport we have had at the training center is speed skating. Unfortunately, after the 2006 games in Torino the speed skating program was relocated to Salt Lake City, Utah. Within the last 2 years the training center has seen another winter Olympic sport, figure skating. I have taken several college business courses with one of the pairs figure skaters, Rockne Brubaker. Rock and his partner Keauna are the 2007 & 2008 National Champions and are the United States top contenders for a medal in Vancouver. Other than Rock being a talented athlete he's also been a good friend helping me with my statistic and finance courses. Maybe someday I will repay him by teaching him how to lift weights....haha I wish him and his partner only the best but I know that they are going to be there in Vancouver on the top of the medal podium. So, come 354 days you know who I will be sitting on the couch cheering for !
