SPOILER ALERT: Governor Baldacci Congratulates Gold Medal Winner
February 15, 2010
AUGUSTA – Governor John E. Baldacci today congratulated Mainer Seth Wescott for his Olympic gold medal in the snowboard cross. This is Wescott’s second gold medal in the event.
“All of Maine is proud of Seth,” Governor Baldacci said. “For the second time, he has proven that he is the best in the world at snowboard cross. Seth helped to introduce the world to his sport in Turin, and the race this year was a thriller from start to finish. But we’re proud of Seth for more than his gold-medal performance. He’s active in his community and sets a high standard for the way he conducts his life.”
Wescott won the gold medal during the snowboard cross in Vancouver. The race will be broadcast on NBC later tonight.
Governor Baldacci also wished all of Maine's Olympic athletes well.
"Our state is well represented in these Olympic Games, and we wish all the competitors the best as they compete on the world's biggest athletic stage."
