What a Life? First-Time Olympic Athletes

We are getting so excited for the 2010 Winter Olympics to begin.  Just before the opening ceremonies, NBC aired a special chronicling the journey of three first-time Olympic athletes. 

I can’t help but look at these young men and women and think how different my life was when I was their age.  They are bearing such a huge responsibility representing their country on the world’s stage.  These athletes are mature, focused and dedicated beyond their years.

Check out this video  and see for yourself.
