#MakingMemphistory: While doing some digging into Memphians in the Winter Olympics, I found a great story. Mike Jankowski, head snowboarding coach for the U.S. Olympic team, was born in Memphis in 1976 and graduated from Christian Brothers High School. He moved to Arizona for college where he began snowboarding. As an instructor in Flagstaff in the early 2000s, he was recruited by the U.S. Olympic team to be an assistant coach with the then-new snowboard team. Entering his fourth Olympics this year, ‘Coach Janks’ had coached American athletes to 19 Olympic medals thanks to stars like Shaun White, Arielle Gold, and Kelly Clark. In Pyeongchang, his athletes have already added at least 5 more medals, 4 of them of the golden variety, to that tally this year. Go USA!!! #TeamUSA#2018WinterOlympics#memphistory
