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.
