BELLINGHAM, Wash. – It was a big day for Winter Olympic fans in Bellingham yesterday.
Bellingham native Angeli VanLaanen made it to the finals of the Free Ski Half-pipe, but crashed on both of her runs.
Here’s what it sounded like on NBC sports after her last run.
VanLannen spoke to reporters after the event.
She definitely hasn’t forgotten where she comes from saying “It’s an honor to represent Bellingham.”
VanLannen was out of the sport for three years to battle Lyme disease.
She learned to ski at the Mount Baker Ski Area.
