My favorite picture from Tuesday comes from one of the events I have been looking forward to covering the most during the Olympics. Women's ski jumping made its debut here in Sochi, and we had three women competing from Park City. This is the moment before Sarah Hendrickson's first jump. I like the feeling of anticipation before she takes off, knowing that these women have been fighting for eight years to get their sport into the Olympics.
