3 Favorite Winter Olympic Moments Contest
# 1. Improbably after stumbling in two previous Olympiads and touching his hand to the ice in the 500m in the 1994 Lillehammer Games Dan Jensen came up with Gold in his non-signature event the 1000 meters. I like this as my number one moment because he found a way to win when he was on the verge of going down as one of the all time choke performances in the Olympic games-this despite being understanably shaken in his first Olympiad shadowed by his sister's death. Instead he came up with one of the all time clutch performances on his last skate. # 2. still get goosebumps... #3. After over a decade drought for the US in the Men's Alpine Ski Team Champion on the Podium Ted Ligety took Gold in the combined at Lillehammer at 21 in what was supposed to be Bode's Games.
