Hometown Hero, Bronze Medalist

While I was off hanging out in DC, Elana Meyers, 2002 graduate of Lithia Springs High School and 2006 graduate of George Washington University, won a bronze medal Wednesday night at the Vancouver Olympics. The only metro Atlantan at the Olympic games this year, she switched from softball to bobsled in 2007. When God closes a door, He opens a window somewhere.

The team’s times are here. Awesome.

Her teammate Erin Pac voiced concern over the Whistler track (Republic of Georgia luger Nodar Kumaritashvili died the first day of the games) and praised their coaches for not only calming their nerves but helping them overcome the track and weather conditions.

Of course, us locals are very proud! Watch Elena’s interview with 11-Alive.

When I told my daughter, another LSHS graduate, about Elana’s family, she said “Of course, that family always does amazing things!”

Throw this girl a parade!
