Jumping and Seeing Liz

written by Sam M

On Sunday morning, the team split into two groups. One group went to do a long ski, and my group went and watched the ski jumping portion of Nordic combined.  First we drove over to Holmenkollen and parked the car in a special reserved spot, and then we ran down to the stadium.  But on the way we saw two very special people.  The first being Harald V, King of Norway, who promptly arrived to watch the event when we did.  The second was US Ski Team skier Liz Stephen, who was on her way to the race when she saw us walking, and hopped out of the van to say hello.  We walked down to the stadium with her and we watched the jumpers fly.
