A Down and Up Day for Allison Baver

February 25, 2010 at 9:27 am Leave a comment

Penn State’s sole Olympian at this year’s Winter Games, speed skater Allison Baver ’03 Berks, had a mixed bag of a day in Vancouver yesterday. On on the one hand, she got herself disqualified from the 1,000-meter competition for bumping another skater. But later in the day, she and her teammates took bronze in the 3,000-meter relay—Baver’s first Olympic medal ever. The Americans kind of backed into the bronze, as this story in this morning’s Philadelphia Inquirer explains. But, hey, a medal is a medal.

Baver’s hometown paper, the Reading Eagle, also has a story about yesterday’s events, and you can read even more about Baver here.
