Callahan entered the first race of his life. It was held on the "Flying Dutchman" which is a blue (intermediate) run with a vertical distance of 3100 feet. The Nastar race is 350 meters in length and the skier has to navigate through a series of flags. Callahan's time earned him a Bronze medal.
I was standing at the top of the run and it just drops off. So not my sport.
It is so wonderful that Callahan has found a sport that he is passinate about and he
wore his medal with such pride.
Callahan started skiing just 2 years ago and this is his first time skiing in colorado which is an entire new ballgame compared to the hills he is used to in Wisconsin. The tip of the mountain is 12,000 ft above sea level.
