Olympic timeā€”not for me but for my friends!

Posted in Alta, ESPN, Lindsey Van, MSNBC, Olympics, Secret, Ski Jumping on February 12, 2010 by Vanessa Pierce

The 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver are underway. I’m sad I can’t be there, but I will be watching to support my friends. Nonetheless, I’m still moving along. Secret has started a new campaign called “Let Her Jump,” which is very positive (check it out at Also, I’m now an Ambassador for Cross Sportswear. I’m really excited to put that clothing to use at the Snowbird Nationals (my first freeskiing comp this March).

Yes, I won’t be competing at the Olympics, and there is plenty of media talking about that. So here are some videos from MSNBC’s freelancer Anna Bloom and Secret. Also, watch ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” on Feb. 14 to see a feature on me. The filmers came a month ago and shot me jumping at the Utah Olympic Park, freeskiing at Alta, working as a PT aide at Alpine Sports Medicine, and hanging out. They are coming back tonight to film me watching the Opening Ceremonies :-( but I will be with dear friends and cheering on all of my friends who I know will do awesome this fortnight!
