La Crescenta was well represented at the Utah Olympic Park Training Site in Park City, UT last week, Jan 12-15. Out of the 13 Southern California kids invited to the Luge Screening camp, 9 were from the La Crescenta/La Canada area. Reaching speeds of 48 mph, they trained with the Olympic Luge Coaches on the actual track of the 2002 Winter Olympics! Special thanks to Olympian Kate Hansen for introducing the sport of Luge to these kids and to Los Gringos Locos and the Hansen Family for sponsoring the Summer Search which gave these kids their big shot at being potential Luge Olympians!
