The Idaho Legislature wants to honor two-time Olympic gold medal cyclist Kristin Armstrong. The Boise resident won gold in last year’s London Olympics and in 2008’s Beijing Olympics.
Representative Hy Kloc (D-Boise) introduced the measure today. “We’d like to commend her for her community work, her outstanding attitude, her focus, and her exemplary conduct.”
Kloc said Armstrong climbed to the top of her profession even in the face of health problems. “In 2001, Kristen was diagnosed with osteoarthritis, and that didn’t stop her.”
