WALLA WALLA, Wash. -- The winter olympics start in about a week up in Vancouver. How about a local connection?
Downhill skier Will Brandenberg was born in Walla Walla and is part of the US Ski Team.
He will be one of the 22 American skiers hunting for gold. Brandenburg started skiing at the age of one and regularly hit the slopes at Bluewood.
He was racing at the age of seven and now he is in the ultimate race, the Olympics. We wish him good luck.
