Winter Olympics begin, and all that jazz

She’s halfway around the world today, in Sochi, Russia. But on Monday afternoon of this week, 22-year-old Jasmine Campbell of Hailey paused for a moment at the base of Bald Mountain as she prepared to travel to the 2014 Winter Olympics. Jasmine, known as “Jazz” in her days studying at the Community School in Sun Valley, is the only representative of the U.S. Virgin Islands at the Olympics. She plans to compete in alpine giant slalom and slalom. She will carry the Virgin Islands flag in today’s opening ceremonies. Here, she wears the powder-blue Virgin Islands parka at the bottom of the hill where she has learned much about the alpine sport that both her father John and mother Jen also love. Learn more about Jasmine in a story on Page 13. Photo by Willy Cook
