Photo Op/ The Olympic Rings

OLYMPIC pride was undeniable on the snowy field in the photo below, as students of Spruce Grove's Woodhaven Middle School showed off their support for local Olympic hero Jennifer Heil yesterday (Feb. 10).

Heil, who won a gold medal in freestyle skiing at the 2006 winter games in Turin, Italy, is from Spruce Grove and, in fact, attended Woodhaven School. She is going for gold again when the 2010 Olympic Games kickoff tomorrow (Feb. 12) in Vancouver.

To capture this shot Global's news helicopter, Global 1, hovered above the junior high school, where hundreds of students formed the five celebrated rings that make up the official symbol of the Olympics, as a pair held up a sign that read "Go Jenn Go."

Some of the other locals who will be competing in the Vancouver Olympics include curlers Kevin Martin & Adam Enright (of Edmonton), speed skater Tamara Oudenaarden (of St. Albert), bobsledders Pierre Lueders & Neville Wright (of Edmonton), hockey players Jarome Iginla & Meaghan Mikkelson (of St. Albert), cross-country skier Madeleine Williams (of Edmonton), and sibling speed skaters Jamie & Jessica Gregg (of Edmonton).
