Trading Pins & Aspen in Sochi

Credit Ruthie Brown

EDITOR’S NOTE: We are very excited to share the travels of Simi Hamilton’s family to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing dispatches from Ruthie Brown and family as they give you a first-hand, “behind-the-scenes” look at the Olympics.

Trading pins is big business in Russia. Pretty sure mafia controlled. They love Al. We can't get more than 2 minutes through Olympic Park without being stopped for a trade or to get their picture taken with him… or both. Give him a few more weeks in Russia and he's sure he'll be fluent.

Security and the Olympic Village

The Colorado flag, given to Noah and Sim by Senator Schwartz made me teary when I walked into the cross country boys unit and it was hanging proudly in the main space.

"The Russian Smile", Security Pains & More from Sochi

Credit Bart Garton

2/12 - Alrighty.  Sorry for the hiatus.  Been busy working hard at day, and celebrating jobs well done at night.  
 
We’re about half way through, and still on Slopestyle.  I’m really looking forward to Ski/Snowboard Cross as that will change things up quite a bit.  And it’s a really exciting sport.  Don’t know my position yet, but I’ll keep you posted.

Simi Sprints and the Sochi Spirit

The Russian crew standing next to us and cheering Sim on while we cheered on their Russian skier, gave me this moms gold medal hanging around my neck. :-)
