U.S. Vancouver Olympians have spiritual support

If U.S. speedskaters Shani Davis and Tucker Fredricks have an edge in Vancouver, it just might be a spiritual one. Their former teammate is now a nun who's remembering them in her prayers. Twelve years ago Kirstin Holum was a rising Olympian when she competed in the Winter Olympics in Nagano. Now she's a Franciscan nun, unable to follow her colleagues' performance since she has no access to TV or Internet. Check out her fascinating story from skater to sister. . . Sister Catherine, that is, shown at right in Nagano in 1998.
