Former Olympic alpine ski racer Christin Cooper speaks during the dedication of a bronze statue honoring her accomplishments Thursday afternoon at the Festival Meadows in Sun Valley. Cooper, a member of the Sun Valley Ski Team who went on to race with the U.S. Ski Team, won a silver medal in giant slalom at the 1984 Winter Olympics. The statue of Cooper was placed next to a bronze statue of slalom racer Gretchen Fraser, the first American skier to win a gold medal in the Olympics, in 1948. The statues are part of the Our Olympic Ladies program, intended to honor six women who have lived in the Wood River Valley and won medals in Winter Olympics and Paralympic games. Funding to complete the project is being raised through the nonprofit Bald Mountain Rescue Fund.
