For many the chance to represent their country at the Olympic games is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! But there’s more to the Olympics than just competing, right? I sat down with Nicole Joraanstad, member of the 2010 U.S. women’s curling team in Vancouver and TDS Telecommunications (TDS®) employee, to find out about life in the Olympic village, what they do with their downtime, and hear about some of the famous people Nicole got to meet.
