CIRCLEVILLE – Last week a 8th grader from Circleville Middle school competed as part of the United States Junior Olympic Luge Team at Empire State Games Youth competition.
Jalynne Davis is a member of the United States Junior Olympic Luge Team, a sport characterized by sliding feet first down an icy track in a series of time trials where every second counts as team members tackle sharp turns and technically difficult steering maneuvers.
Specifically, Jalynne competed in the Youth B division of the games where she finished 8th overall in the group. Davis clocked in at 80 Kph only a few kilometers slower than the winner Elizabeth Kleinheinz.
