Vail’s Sarah Schleper gears up for fifth Olympics – The Denver Post

When the Mexico delegation enters the opening ceremony of next month’s Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, you’ll see someone familiar.

Vail’s Sarah Schleper will be the flag bearer.

“This has me almost as excited as the racing. This is a huge honor,” Schleper said from Italy, where she is training. “Although I wasn’t born in Mexico, I feel really connected to the country. I think it’s hard for some people to understand why I would change nationalities and where my patriotism is, but they have to understand that half of my family is Mexican.”
