Nice write up. Interesting detail. Good afterglow.

Thank you for the nice insights into our remarkable local-boy, "War Horse" Weibrecht. Sport is just that ... sport...whether it is football, baseball, biathlon or the Giant Slalom. the heroes of the differing sports generally have the same credentials: Talent, dedication and the "will to win." Sports are not the end-all and be-all of life,just a metaphor...but we love them with equal vigor. Cheers to War Horse. You made us here in the Adks very proud last week.
