Where is Lehi's Kristi Koplin (bob sled) in your review?!

Ogden, UT

It bugs me that the media always says that all these athletes are from Utah. While some are, most simply train here. Unless you graduated from a Utah high school (not a ski school, but a real school) or have lived here for more than half your life, you are not from Utah. We don't claim that John Stockton, Karl Malone, or Jerry Sloan are from Utah. They "lived" here too. It just bugs me.

Kings Court
Alpine, UT

Noelle-Pikus Pace actually lives in Eagle Mountain and has done so for many years.

slc, ut
