The greatest indoor Olympians in City of Orem history earned eternal glory Thursday afternoon in the City Council Chambers. Representing 90 of the greatest countries in the world, 118 athletes met on the battlefield of internal competition. We salute every combatant for stepping into the arena and giving us a performance we will not soon forget.
Special thanks to our Wellness Committee for putting this on: our fearless Captain Debbie Boone, and the inimitable team of Jon Ditto, Joe Morgan, Holly Grierson, Jared Peck, and Nicole Lareau. An extra special thanks to our honorary committee members Kyle Johnson, Lissy Sarvela, Sean Broderick, Jennica Jones, and Steven Downs.
And now we present to you . . . THE CHAMPIONS. This win will go on their permanent record as a testament to their unsurpassed skill and steely resolve in the face of intense pressure.
