    That, I'd like to see, also. A Studebaker on the podium is long overdue

            Way to go Sara. We'll be watching you. Now tell us which of the Studebaker brothers you are descended from.

                  She's not doing too well.....

                  Sara Studebaker, a Boise High School graduate and U.S. Olympian, finished 51st Tuesday in the women's 10-kilometer pursuit biathlon competition in Sochi, Russia.
                  Studebaker's time of 35:00:00 was 5 minutes and 29 seconds behind Belarus' Darya Domracheva, the gold medalist. Studebaker amassed five penalties during the shooting portion of the event.
                  Biathlon is a sport that combines cross-country skiing and target shooting with a rifle. Studebaker became interested in biathlon while watching the 1998 Olympics on TV. She already was a skier and Eric Reynolds, then a coach with the Bogus Basin Nordic Team, helped her and a friend learn the sport that combines cross country skiing and target shooting.

                    See her web page: http://www.sarastudebaker.blogspot.com/

                    In the main photo, she is posing with a Studebaker pickup, so she's very aware of the family connection!!!

                      Thanks Joe, Jeff and Curt for the links. Now we have another Studebaker model to look up to and discuss. Good luck in your future endeavours Sara.
