100 Days To Vancouver - NYC trip

100 Days to Vancouver - In between finishing a camp in Utah and returning home to Placid, I took a quick trip to New York City last week to help promote and celebrate the Olympics with fellow winter Olympic sports, Manhattan school kids, the US Olympic Committee and the media.

Local kids, and anyone passing through Rockefeller Center, learned about biathlon from USBA staff, athletes and Concept2 - SkiErg staff.

They watched us shoot the laser biathlon rifle after poling on the double-pole machine to get our heart rate up.

Then, cheered for every hit!

Afterwards, it was their turn - nearly 300 of them all circulated through USBA's booth, as well as skated on the ice at Rockefeller Center, watched aerialist do tricks on the trampolines and even gave luge a try on the luge start ramp.

Teammates Lowell, Tim and I in NYC.
