We have also received several updates from Coach Bonnie Kahn, who is leading the Team USA Special Olympic Cross Country Ski Team in the World Games.
Coach Kahn says they have landed in Seoul, South Korea. She described the nearly 20 hour journey as grueling, with 100 plus members traveling to South Korea via Los Angeles and Tokyo.
The athletes are mixing in entertainment with their training and napping…trying to get their bodily clocks adjusted.
The official opening ceremonies will begin tomorrow in Pyeongchang. The events begin that same day. In addition to Coach Kahn, Wisconsin is also represented by 3 athletes.
