Olympic Cyclist Visits Minico High School
Rupert, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Olympic Cyclist Kristin Armstrong brought her story about being an "ordinary person" to Minico School employees today.
Armstrong explained that growing up, she was a military kid who moved every three years. But she found out she could get athletic scholarships, and that laid the foundation for her Olympic victories.
Armstrong says, "I can tell you what I did do. And some of those characteristics like determination and sacrifice and believing in myself. I just came out and challenged some of the staff today to be this person."
As Minico High School Principal Suzette Miller tells her educators and students, every fall is a fresh start. Armstrong's speech today was an inspiration to many in attendance.
