Local hero Kristi Richards just won her first World Cup victory in dual moguls. I remember being so stoked watching her on TV with Ivy at the last Olympics and then seeing her at the Summerland Fair parade in spring, handing out candy to kids -- she seems like a fantastic role model. Skiing moguls is incredibly difficult and she's amazing at it. I enjoyed her journal entry about the victory (with some great photos -- check out what they ski down at mach speed) and also hearing about how she overcame the post-Olympics blues in a another journal.
