Lawrence of America in Utah

People think we're strange here in Utah. Heck, people think we're strange in the United States. I mean, who are we kidding, were different.

To that end, the Travel Channel has a series called "Lawrence of America" where Lawrence travels the U.S. learning different trades and traditions. In the upcoming episode, to air this coming Monday June 30th, features Lawrence in Park City, Utah learning about the winter Olympic sports and giving them a try. You can see a piece of the episode on the Travel Channel's Lawrence page, click the video screen just right of center. In this clip, you get a look at what ski athletes do for summer training.

Here's a particularly funny segment about college cheerleaders which may give you an idea of what he'll cover in the Utah Olympic Athlete episode.

Who is Lawrence? He's an English born journalist who is on a journey through America to discover the subcultures, traditions and unique aspects of life here. Where else to come to find unique traditions and aspects of life than Utah?! Well, he's here for the Olympic Athletes that live and train here which is, after all, unique.
