Ski Girls

I am in awe & amazement of the Olympic ski girls, especially the incredible women from the United States. Wow! They have guts & they don't give up & it shows first on the hill & then on the podium! It has been so impressive to watch these women & how their hard work has paid off in the WIN department!

Lindsey Vonn-wins the GOLD in the women's downhill on men's skis & with an injured shin!

Julia Mancuso-had a great run & ends up with the silver in the women's downhill. There were several crashes on the course & she just rocketed through to a great finish! She won gold in Torino in 2006 in GS. (Mancuso on left below & Vonn on Right, USA Today)

If you are thinking of a way to help your daughter with self-esteem then get her out on the slopes. The combination of fresh air & overcoming fears will help her to become a confident young lady! The US will need new ski girls for future Olympics as these incredible ladies retire from the sport! I love the Olympics. God bless the USA! Ski Like a Girl!!
