“I am excited to have the opportunity to meet new people from around the world and make new friends,” said Casey. “I want to win for myself, my team and my family and my friends who have supported me.”

In addition to this year’s Olympic challenge, Casey also participated in the 2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games in Boise, ID. Her snowshoeing expertise enabled her to bring home 2 silver medals.
