Dec 03, 2001 — In February, the United States will host the Olympic Winter Games, for the first time since 1980 in Lake Placid. The Salt Lake Olympics will also mark the return of the sport of skeleton, after a 56-year absence from the Games. Lake Placid resident, Jimmy Shea, hopes to make the U.S. Olympic skeleton team. If he does this he'll become the first third-generation American Winter Olympian. Recently, Jimmy Shea was in Lake Placid to take part in the National Team Trial races. Beth Schmidt had a chance to spend some time with him.
