 4    Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:

10        WHEREAS, Picabo Street has achieved her goals with inspiring success; and
11        WHEREAS,  Picabo  Street  won  a silver medal in the 1994 Winter Olympics,
12    many World Cup downhill ski races, a Crystal Globe award symbolic of World Cup
13    skiing supremacy, and most recently a gold medal in the 1998 Winter  Olympics;
14    and
15        WHEREAS, Picabo Street has reached the peak of her skills; and
16        WHEREAS,  Picabo  Street  has  climbed to the top of her profession in the
17    face of great adversity, including a  debilitating  knee  injury  in  December
18    1996, that threatened to end her career and a concussion in January 1998, that
19    threatened her performance at the 1998 Winter Olympics; and
20        WHEREAS,  Picabo  Street  fought  back  with exemplary strength, focus and
21    determination and recovered completely from both injuries; and

24        WHEREAS, Picabo Street is a positive role model for us all; and
25        WHEREAS,  Picabo  Street's  performance  in the 1998 Winter Olympics makes
26    Americans look eagerly to the Winter Olympics to be held in  Salt  Lake  City,

28    state of Idaho.
29        NOW,  THEREFORE,  BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
30    sion of the Fifty-fourth Idaho Legislature, the House of  Representatives  and
