Snowboarder Daina Shilts, from Neillsville, brought home gold from the Winter Games four years ago. She's hoping for a repeat. Ashland's Kyle Robinson is an alpine skier who can't wait to hit the alps. And cross-country skier Heidi Van Able - she's excited for the whole experience.
"The most exciting thing about this is going to Austria, skiing with Team USA, and looking at the Alps and getting souvenirs," she says.
Waukesha Police Specialist Niki Nelson is also overseas - she took part in the law enforcement torch run, which supports Special Olympics.
The opening ceremonies are Saturday, and along with highlights throughout the games, will be carried on ESPN.
