Yesterday was the first day of competition of the 2010 Winter Olympics.  It was also the first day of LASIK for the Gold's Katherine Reutter's Olympic career.

Katherine won her heat in the 500m with a time of 44.187 seconds to advance to the quaterfinals on Wednesday.

She was also part of the women's 3000m relay that advanced in the semifinals.  She will be competing in the finals on Wednesday February 24.

Watching on TV last night, I was awed by the speed and action of these events.  I am anxiously waiting to see Katherine in furthur action this week in the 1000m and 1500m races!  GO Katherine!!
