Baby Alyson

Looks like our bronze medalist has had passion for the Olympics every since she was a wee little kid (Alyson says). This is definitely an example that shows love, passion and heart towards a sport!

HOW IS IT INTERESTING?

The sport is a sport of speed and it gets people going. Just the way you glide on the ice gives you the strength and the ability to do your best.

GAME FACE!

This video shows the playful side the Olympians. It shows that even though they are competitors they are still able to laugh and joke around. But when is race time these Olympians sure do know how to put their game face on. They all have to be put in this booklet where it shows a picture of their game face and gives a short article about them. Here you can watch a video where Alyson and some of her teammates talk about how they feel about their game face picture.
