BOSTON – On Feb. 14, Senator Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington) offered a Senate Resolution, with 18 Senate co-sponsors, to honor the thirteen Massachusetts Olympians that are competing in the 2018 U.S. Olympic Winter Games in the county of Pyeongchang in South Korea. The resolution was adopted and enacted during the Senate’s formal session in Gardner Auditorium at the State House.
The thirteen athletes are members of the ice hockey, bobsled, snowboarding and freestyle and alpine skiing teams. Among the athletes is Burlington native and ice hockey defender Kali Flanagan, who is one of five current or former Boston College players on the women’s U.S. Olympic ice hockey team.
“It’s an honor to recognize such talented and hard-working athletes from across our state and especially in my district,” said Senator Friedman. “Kali is an exemplary athlete, and I hope that her success inspires other young women to follow in her footsteps. I wish Kali, the women’s ice hockey team, and all of the Massachusetts athletes participating in this year’s Winter Olympics the best of luck.”
