Glimpse Into the Olympic Games

Glimpse Into the Olympic Games

The Olympics kick off Friday in PyeongChang, and my life has been tied to the Olympics since the beginning, particularly the Winter Games. I was born during the 1984 Winter Olympics held in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia. On the night I was born, Bill Johnson became the first American man to win an Olympic gold media in alpine skiing when he won the downhill. He was the first racer (male or female) from outside the Alps to win an Olympic downhill.

Olympic Time Trial

Olympic Time Trial

In his first Olympic time trial, Brent finished 23rd on Wednesday, 5:42 after winner Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland. His race against the clock in Rio got off to a rough start when he crashed on a turn only 300 meters into the 54.6-kilometer race. Here are his comments after meeting the media and even taking a turn at some TV announcing of the event for NBC Sports.
