Olympic champion Ted Ligety pays visit to Utah youths
A batch of Utah youths enjoyed a golden opportunity Monday to meet an Olympic champion.
Park City's Ted Ligety, two-time Olympic gold medalist in alpine skiing, visited with kids attending a YMCA Summer Day Camp in Taylorsville.
Ligety who finished first in the giant slalom at the Sochi Winter Games in Russia last February and captured the combined crown at Torino, Italy, in 2006 was among a group of partners supporting the YMCA of Northern Utah, along with the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association, the National Winter Sports Education Foundation and Park City Mountain Resort.
