When Park City’s Ted Ligety finally got his gold medal at the Sochi Olympics, Salt Lake Tribune photographer Chris Detrick was there to capture awesome photos of the runs.
Detrick rented skis to shoot Ligety in the giant slalom, hiking up the mountain and later skiing down it with 65 pounds of camera gear.
That’s the kind of effort Detrick put into shooting the Sochi Games — that something extra that resulted in this jubilant photo of Noelle Pikus-Pace celebrating with her family, and what will surely be a historic shot of Park City’s Sarah Hendrickson in the moment before her first jump, which marked the start of the first-ever women’s Olympic ski jumping competition.
There are many, many more, which Detrick will share Thursday, March 13, at 7 p.m. at the Salt Lake City Main Library in a free event. Detrick will present a slide show of his Olympics photos, talk about covering the event and answer questions.
