skeleton racer

I found another reason why I love NPR.

Heard a story about Katie Uhlaender a US skeleton racer competing in the Olympics – it’s that sport where the athlete sleds down an icy track face-first reaching speeds at 90 miles an hour. Yeowza! She spoke about the obstacles she had to overcome to make it to Vancouver:  the death of her father and two busted knees.
