Johnathan Lunceford, of Lunceford Excavation, left, carefully guides a bronze statue of slalom racer Gretchen Fraser, the first American skier to win gold in the Olympics, with his tractor to its new home at the Festival Meadow in Sun Valley on Friday afternoon. Former U.S. Women’s Team Head Coach Michel Rudigoz, center, assists in the project. The sculpture was moved from near the Warm Springs base of Bald Mountain to closer to town to be part of a Thursday unveiling with another sculpture of former Olympics alpine ski racer Christine Cooper. “The city of Sun Valley has been awesome! Our Olympic ladies have a home. It’s where they need to be,” former Paralympian Muffy Davis said. The statues are part of the Olympic Ladies program, intended to honor six women who’ve lived in the Wood River Valley and won medals in Winter Olympics and Paralympic games.
