The 2018 Winter Olympics are kicking off  and Mainers have a solid representation at this year's games. You can stream the opening ceremony here! Our seven athletes with ties to Maine have poured their heart and soul into their respective sports, but what's more impressive is that they've managed to still have lives outside of training.
