Aspen, Colorado is a small village in the Rocky Mountains. Aspen is sending 7 Olympians to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. Remarkable!!!. The 7 Olympians; Jeremy Abbott, Figure Skating, Gretchen Bleiler, Snowboarding, Simi Hamilton, Cross Country Skiing, Chris Klug, Snowboarding, Alice McKennis, Alpine Skiing, Casey Puckett, Skicross and Jake Zamansky, Alpine Skiing.
The entire town turned out for the Olympic style send off in Gondola Plaza. 5-time Olympian Casey Puckett said it best "you have to be a pretty good athlete to make the Olympic team-- in Aspen, we're just average". More pix on FaceBook. http://bit.ly/FBspin
