Tanith Belbin and Ben Agosto have a strong shot at winning a medal in Vancouver – if they ever get there. Right now, the ice dancing pair who won silver in Turin are stopped by the same snowstorm that is paralyzing much of the country and has hit the East Coast particularly hard. Belbin tweeted on Tuesday night:
Belbin and Agosto are hoping to get into town by Friday afternoon so that they can be a part of the Opening Ceremony. They're not scheduled to compete until Friday, Feb. 19, but most athletes arrive much earlier than their competition date, not only to prepare for their events, but also to enjoy the Olympic experience.
