Squaw Valley has four of its athletes heading to Sochi and the Winter Olympics, according to a press release by Amelia Richmond on January 28.

Richmond said that, "Squaw Valley's Julia Mancuso, Travis Ganong, Marco Sullivan and Nate Holland will all be representing Team USA in their respective fields. They are now part of the largest U.S. Winter Olympic Team in history which consists of 230 world-class athletes."

Todd Kelly, ski team director at Squaw Valley, chipped in with this: "“We are so proud of all of the incredible athletes who are representing the United States in Sochi. We will be cheering them on from Squaw Valley and hope they bring home some new hardware to show off!”

Julia Mancuso, competing in her fourth Olympics, will ski in the women's downhill, super-G, giant slalom, and super combined. That's a pretty intense schedule.

Nate Holland, in his third Olympics, will compete in men's snowboard cross. He is a multi-talented athlete who has won eight X Games gold medals.

Marco Sullivan, a Squaw Valley guy, also competes in his fourth Olympics. His races are the men's downhill and the super-G.

Travis Ganong, a Squaw Valley native, will be in his first Olympic Games. He will also compete in the men's downhill and the super-G. This youngster started skiing at Squaw Valley as a youngster.

That's a pretty impressive group, right out of our own Lake Tahoe and Squaw Valley.
