So guys…there are only a few days left of the Winter Olympics 2014. Let’s do a check-in of the most interesting bits and pieces to come from the games!
1. Lolo Jones and her bobsledding team placed eleventh in the first of the bobsledding races. The duo bobsledding team, however, is in first place as of today. Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams set a new record at the Sochi bobsled course, finishing at 57.26 during their first heat.
Detroit is the largest city in Michigan and is known for its automobile production. Detroit was founded in 1701 and currently has a population of just over 900,000 people. In 1950, Detroit was the fourth largest city in the nation, but currently holds the number eleven spot.
