Olympic Hopeful Kicked Off Team After Plane IncidentBy Rocky Thompson on August 15th, 2011
An 18-year-old member of the U.S. Ski Team was cut loose after it was reported that he drank 5 or 6 beers, a couple rum and cokes and then got on a red eye bound for New York from Portland. Shortly after the flight was airborne he walked up a few rows and peed on the floor next to a young girl’s chair while her father was in the bathroom. The skier was an Olympic hopeful, but it gets hard to hold onto sponsors and train full time when something like this gets attached to your name. Too bad he’s not a snowboarding hopeful.
