Ithaca native at the Winter Olympics
Now that the SuperBowl is over its time to start looking ahead to the next big sporting event: the Winter Olympics. And while the SuperBowl didn’t really hit close to home this time around, there is an especially good reason to watch this season’s Olympic games as Ithaca native Dustin Brown heads to Sochi, Russia on February 13th as a part of Team USA for ice hockey. An assistant captain of the team, this is Dustin’s second time at the Olympics but he is not the only one representing our area. Cornell University has several former and current sports members also attending including senior Brianne Jenner and multiple graduates competing for Team Canada. The Winter Olympics begin this Thursday February 6th and continue through the 23rd .
