Pair of curlers are oldest American Olympians
American curler Tracy Sachtjen doesn’t need a reminder that
she’s the oldest U.S. Olympian in Vancouver.
Sachtjen turns 41 this week and is an alternate on the team. She
posed the other day for a photo with 16-year-old freestyle
aerialist Ashley Caldwell – the skier is the same age as Sachtjen’s
American men’s curler John Benton, the guy teammates call
“great-grandpa,” is also a forty-something. But Sachtjen’s got
him beat by four months.
