Olympic Ski Jumps Tour!

On my third day in Lake Placid, we all visited the Olympic ski jump training venue and it was so awesome!!  We walked up to the water ramps first and sat in the bleachers and watched people go off the ramps for about five minutes, and would you believe I instantly spotted Hannah Kearney at the bottom getting suited up to go off the jumps!  I couldn’t believe it!  Then we went up in the elevator to the top of the ski jump and took some pictures of the awesome view and watched a couple people go off the ski jump.  We also met Nick Fairall there who is training for the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics in South Korea!!  Not to mention he was in the Sochi olympics and got 35th in men’s normal hill… so cool!!!!  Anyway, after getting off the ski lift 3 of us decided to go back to the water ramps and see if Hannah Kearney was still there and she was just leaving as we got there so I was able to get a quick picture with her!!  She was so incredibly nice and I couldn’t help but tell her how inspiring her performance was in Sochi and I wanted to cry during her interview, haha!  She said we made her day.  🙂  So obviously it was an incredibly awesome trip!!  It was crazy that we were there at the same time as her, too, because she said she was just driving through on her way to train in Utah and just stopped by for an hour or two while she was going by!  Such a privilege to meet her and I hope she continues to train for Pyeongchang!
