Idaho Olympian Honored by Legislature

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho’s two-time Olympic gold medalist cyclist Kristin Armstrong is due to be honored by the state Legislature. Armstrong is coming off a big win in the time trial in the 2012 London Olympics last summer. The Boise resident also won time-trial gold in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. On Wednesday, Boise Rep. Hy Kloc introduced a measure lauding Armstrong’s dedication to her sport in the face of adversity.

The resolution is now headed for a vote in the full House. Kloc cited Armstrong’s diagnosis of osteoarthritis that ended her triathlon career a dozen years ago, but got her started on the path to becoming the most-successful U.S. professional women’s cyclist ever. She retired following her win on the streets of London and lives in Boise with her husband and young son.
