A look back at the Olympics

Listen to this story
Lake Placid-based photographer Nancie Battaglia was NCPR's eyes, and ears, during the Vancouver Olympic games. Battaglia came to Lake Placid to document the 1980 Winter Olympics, and she's is now an experienced Olympic "regular." Vancouver was her eighth games, seventh winter games. She shoots for a number of publications, including Sport Illustrated. This year she not only sent us great shots of local athletes at the games, she found their families and fans, too, and checked in on-air during breaks in the action. Martha Foley called her for a final conversation this week. She's been back for about a week, catching up, catching her breath. She left early on the final Sunday - missing the climactic US Canada hockey game, but also ahead of the crowds that jammed the region's airports that night and the next day.
