More Green Heading To Torino

From Rick Adams, Dartmouth College

As the Olympic Winter Games in Torino, Italy, approach, Dartmouth is again well represented on the United States Olympic Team. Two skiers have been named to the U.S. Biathlon team, based on results at the TD Banknorth Festival at Fort Kent, the qualifying event for the U.S. Olympic Team in Fort Kent, Maine.

Carolyn Treacy, a Dartmouth senior from Duluth, Minn., posted three top-10 finishes, including second place result in the 7.5-kilometer sprint race on Friday, to earn a berth on the U.S. team. Sarah Konrad, a 1989 Dartmouth graduate from Laramie, Wyo., won the 10-kilometer pursuit race on Tuesday and posted two other top-10 finishes to also qualify for the trip to Torino in February.

Ten Olympic medal events in biathlon, which combines the physically demanding sport of cross-country skiing with the intense precision of rifle marksmanship, will be held February 11-25.

In addition to Treacy and Konrad, five women's ice hockey players with connections to Dartmouth have been selected for the U.S. and Canadian Olympic teams. More Dartmouth athletes are expected to be named to represent the U.S. as well as other nations as the Games draw near. Selections for the U.S. Ski Team, both cross country and Alpine, are expected later this month. Dartmouth has been represented by athletes and coaches at every Olympic Winter Games since 1924.

The Ivy League now has 20 confirmed Olympians heading to Torino, including 18 women's hockey players. More are expected to be named in the coming month.
