With yesterday's closing ceremonies marking the close of the 2010 winter games in Vancouver, its time to reflect on the outstanding performances of our LASIK for the Gold athletes. Overall, the group won 7 medals, 1 Gold, 3 silver, and 3 bronze. If LASIK for the Gold were a country, this total would place us in 13th place just behind the Netherlands and ahead of the Czech Republic! Awesome job!!
Here is a breakdown of how our athletes did:
Curt Tomasevicz won a Gold medal as the brakeman of the 4 man bobsled. He also finished 6th in the 2 man event.
Erin Pac took the Bronze in the women's bobsled.
Molly Engstrom won a Silver Medal as part of Team USA's women's hockey team.
Chad Hedrick won a Bronze in the men's 1000m speedskating and a Silver in the men's Team pursuit. He also placed 6th in the 1500m and 11th in the 5000m.
Katherine Reutter took a Silver in the women's 1000m short track speedskating and a bronze in the 3000m relay. She also placed 4th in the 1500m and 3rd in the 500m B finals.
Dan Joye placed 6th in the doubles luge.
All in all, an excellent job by all our winter athletes. Now the countdown begins for the 2012 summer games in London!
