As I have been watching the Olympics the past few days I have been thinking a lot about my dad… as I do daily but even more during every Winter Olympics and other special times.
There are so many special stories and special moments at the Olympics… many wonderful. some sad but all interesting!!
My dad was a Downhill Alpine Ski Champion for Austria, who lost his chance to compete in the Olympics because they were cancelled in 1940 and 1944 because of Hitler and WWII.
Somewhere I have one of his Austrian Ski Medals.
I of course root for all the American athletes first, but can’t help but smile when an Austrian skier pulls out a medal.
