Your feel-good Olympic story of the day features Roberto Carcelen, cross country skier and Peru's first-ever Winter Olympian. Carcelen broke a rib in training but elected to compete in today's 15K Classic anyway; he struggled through the course and finished dead last.
Boy meets girl online. Boy falls for girl. Boy moves from Peru to Seattle. Boy marries girl. Girl teaches boy to ski, at 34 years old. Boy makes Olympic team. It's the oldest story in the book. [Seattle Times]
