As is tradition today, winning teams, national champions, and Olympian Medalists are invited to the White House. Since Trump has been president, these have not always been well attended. However, local Olympian Nick Goepper made his appearance with the 2018 Winter Olympic team. Goepper, who was a 2-time Olympic medalist from Lawrenceburg, Indiana, was there to be congratulated by the president. Several of the big name Olympians, such as Adam Rippon, chose not to attend.Despite what you may think of Trump’s policies, it is good to see that Goepper was proud of the honor and made his appearance. Quite an accomplishment for someone who was not raised in a winter Olympic climate.
