Good on ya, Kate! So proud!!!

Wonder how many newspapers give the 10th place finished first billing over a bronze metal winner?

Danbury, CT

Congrats to Kate!

These luge champions have been in 2 or 3 olympics - this is Kate's first (of many I hope).

@Who Am I Sir? Your moniker serves you well. Rather than casting aspersions on someone who has worked for years and made it to a world class event, you should be rooting for Kate too. There is an 18 year doing the luge from a town near ours in CT and he was featured yesterday on the evening news in NYC.

So....other than itty bitty little Salt Lake, New York also touts its olympians over all the others.

@Who am I sir?

Your comment is accurate only as to the headline. The article has more ink devoted to Hamlin, and tracks the LA Times article closely. Every paper with local interest in a competitor will give the local product (BYU student though from SoCal) lots of attention. There is no comparison to the journalistic stature of the LA Times compared to the DNews, but in addition to the story on the event results Kate Hansen has her own featured story because she's local.

Kate deserves the local publicity. She's local and in addition, the DN always gives over the top coverage to Mormons as well. Congratulations Kate!

South Jordan, UT

Congratulations to Kate and Erin.

Hopefully, the rest of the team will do better than all the flops that have taken place thus far.

I think the revised title highlights each participant in the proper order. Congratulations!

"Who Am I Sir? Your moniker serves you well."

Thank you, sir! I take that as a high compliment. And it appears the Deseret News agrees as it has changed the headline to reflect the significance of the two accomplished athletes. Don't you agree?
