Olympians @ Pettit Center
I have been at the Pettit Center the past two days watching the Olympic Speedskating Trials. Very cool!!!! Former Gold medalists Shani Davis and Chad Hedrick were there, as were several other past Olympians. We watched Chad set the Pettit record in the 1,500 meters yesterday and then Shani come within .02 of breaking it. Today Shani dominated in the 10,000 meters. The event drew huge crowds and was great entertainment for all. Let's hope the 2010 Icebreaker Indoor Marathon is just as much fun!
