Bend’s Laurenne Ross arrived in Sochi, Russia on Tuesday and announced it to the world through her Instagram and Twitter feeds.
“Well, we’ve made it! Can’t wait to get on my skis ... Yahoo!” she wrote on her Twitter feed @lalalalaurenne. On her Instagram account, she posted a photo of Sochi from the airport: “This bird has landed!”
Part live action, part blog, part travelogue — the social media coming from Olympic athletes is as varied as the athletes themselves and will provide a glimpse into the daily lives and activites of Olympians from all over the world.
Bend’s Kent Callister (@kentcallister) announced his making the Australian Olympic Team on Twitter, and recently posted of picture from his training at Hintertux in Austria.
Whatever the results of local athletes and the U.S. in general, we are sure to get interesting insights of the Olympic experience — straight from the participants’ fingertips.
