Before It’s Too Late to Mention

I meant to post this about two days ago but got forgetful all of a sudden.  🙂

Some good friends and supporters of ours, whom we first met in Honduras over 10 years ago, have a grandson in these Winter Olympics!  How rare is that to be related to an Olympian?!?  They gave me permission to post this brief email message they sent to alert their friends of this fact and to perhaps look out for his performance and cheer for him!  (unless you’re related to one of his competitors, of course, ha-ha!)



The Winter Olympics will soon be starting in Vancouver, B.C.  We wanted to tell you that one of our grandsons, Ryan Bedford, is on the US Long Track Speedskating team.  Ryan is the son of our youngest son Phillip and his wife Beth.  He won the 10K in the US Olympic Trials in December and qualified him.  He is 23 years old and has been skating since he was 5.  He has a website so if you are interested in knowing more about him.    He will be skating the 10K on the Richmond Olympic Oval on February 23.  The event starts at 11AM Pacific time.  We do not know how much TV coverage the event will get, but if you do see it and see Ryan you will know that he is our grandson.  We are so happy that he had made the team as he has worked so hard for a place on the team and it is a great honor to represent our country at the Olympics.  We pray that he stays in excellent health and is free from injury as he prepares in Vancouver for this

[Yahoo Sports Olympics Schedule shows this race will be at 2 p.m. EST Tuesday, February 23rd which is the same as 11 a.m. Pacific as stated above]
