A Rhinelander man offers insight into what it’s like to compete in the Olympic games. Chris Cook was on the United States ski team at the 2006 Torino Olympics.
Cook describes being on the start-line as a moment of clarity.
“Everything else about the Olympics is a huge distraction, and pulling you in all sorts of directions. But at the end of the day when you get to that starting line that’s where you’re comfortable, that’s where you’ve had all the training, all the preparation.”
