Sochi Updates: Going for Gold

How is the US doing in the Winter Olympics? As of right now, the US is in 5th place for the most metals won so far with 4 gold, 2 silver and 4 bronze metals. You can keep yourself updated at the Sochi website. This is a great website for checking up on events, looking at different metals won, and checking up on Olympian profiles.

For example, I found another local Olympian. If you’ve been watching the Figure Skating competition, you may know Gracie Gold. In her low training season, she trains 21 hours a week at ice rinks in Glen Ellyn and Vernon Hills. If you want to read more about Gracie, read an article about her time in the Daily Herald.

Gracie Gold trains at Center Ice of DuPage in Glen Ellyn in February 2012 as one of her coaches, Oleg Epstein, looks on.
