This year the U.S. had many promis-
ing athletes going into the 1984 Winter
Olympics. Not only did these athletes ex-
cel in their sports, some unexpected tal-
ents appeared on the slopes and ice.
On the slopes Phil Mahre came in a
disappointing 8th in the Giant Salomn
but came back to take the gold in the
Salomn. Phil's twin brother, Steve
Mahre, finished 14th in the Giant Sa-
lomn and took the silver in the Salomn.
Phil not only got a gold medal that day.

Bill "J oe Willie" Johnson coming to the
games with total confidence and taking

in Men's Figure Skating. Scott, having

was not expected to live that long. He
proved everybody wrong with his super
talent. Then there was Elaine Zayak,
who as a child had halfofher foot cut off
by a lawnmower. Even though Elaine
only placed 8th, she has many years to go.
Another Lady's figure skater that stole
everybody's heart was Tiffany Chin, who
at 16 took 4th and certainly will be back
next time. U.S.'s biggest hope in Wom-
en's figured skating was Rosalyn
Sumners, who after the short program
was knocked to 2nd and stayed there tak-
ing the silver. I-low could someone adopt
two silver medal skaters from the same
orphanage? No one knows but the Car-
rurtherses certainly did prove they had
talent. While only hoping for a bronze,
they took the silver overjoyed. Even
though Blumberg and Seibert missed a
bronze by so little they certainly did cap-
ture the audience with their outstanding
