CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- This morning on News Channel 36 Today, we had the conclusion of Larry's Olympics.

This competition featured a real Olympian -- one of the greatest speed skaters of all time -- Dan Jansen.
 
He was a gold medalist in the 1994 Winter Olympics, competed in four different Olympics, an eight time World record holder, has 46 World Cup victories, and this list goes on!

Dan actually lives in the area and actually was our morning show quest a couple weeks. At that time he challenged Larry to race him on ice.

Well, the challenge was take but, with a slight twist. It became a "formal" challenge---in the water at the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center.
