This year’s winter Olympics in Beijing have been anything but smooth sailing for American athletes. Allegations of cheating and favoritism have dogged the games, and the U-S has fallen behind in the medal count. 

With more than a week to go before the games end, some of Team USA’s top athletes are gearing up to make a serious comeback. That includes David Wise, a two-time, freestyle skiing gold medalist. He’s among the dozen or so athletes competing in this year’s games who train and call the Reno/Tahoe area home.
