Cheer on North Texas' 2022 Winter Olympians
Two North Texans are heading to the winter Olympics in Beijing.
Why it matters: The Olympics start Friday. Ashley Cain-Gribble and her figure skating partner won their second U.S. pairs title earlier this month, securing a spot on Team USA.
Here's who we'll be cheering for:
Ashley Cain-Gribble from Coppell skates with Timothy LeDuc, who will be the first openly nonbinary athlete to compete in the winter games.
Sylvia Hoffman is a bobsledder from Arlington who has also competed as a weightlifter. She made the bobsledding team just a few weeks after taking up the sport.
Our thought bubble: Texas might not seem like a winter sports hub, but we’ll be watching these two.
