EDITOR’S NOTE: We are very excited to share the travels of Simi Hamilton’s family to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing dispatches from Ruthie Brown and family as they give you a first-hand, “behind-the-scenes” look at the Olympics.

Simi Sprints and the Sochi Spirit

The Russian crew standing next to us and cheering Sim on while we cheered on their Russian skier, gave me this moms gold medal hanging around my neck. :-)
