Our club's very own Cindy Hirschfield is the editor of Cross Country Skier Magazine and overcame planes, trains, automobiles, busses, COVID tests, rogue QR codes and more to venture to China and report on the Beijing Olympics.   She's spending most of her time in Zhangijakou  where the nordic events take place.  Check out Cindy's Feb 14 "Sufferfest" article about the Mens and Womens Biathalon events here
And if Cindy wasn't busy enough in China, as Chair of our club's Speaker Committee, she introduced local Aspen olympians Simi Hamilton  and Sophie Caldwell Hamilton to speak about their days competing in multiple Olympics and World Cup nordic events.  Together they now coach for the AVSC National Comp Nordic Team and play integral roles in inspiring the next generation of junior nordic athletes in the Roaring Fork Valley.  Thanks Cindy, and thanks to Simi and Sophie for speaking to our club today!
(Inside tip:  for any non-rotarian readers, we enjoy great speakers like Simi and Sophie at our weekly Rotary Club of Aspen breakfast meetings.)
