LAKE PLACID - In this week's Lake Placid News, Ironman 70.3 Lake Placid triathlon coordinators publicly thanked a number of EMS workers and volunteers for saving an athlete's life in September.

Race Director Greg Borzilleri and members of his team, including Medical Director Tracey Viola, gave away certificates Nov. 15 at the Lake Placid Beach House and explained how exactly the life-saving story unfolded. Groups honored included the Lake Placid Volunteer Ambulance Service, Saranac Lake Volunteer Rescue Squad, AMC Lake Placid and North Country Life Flight.

The Lake Placid Village Board approved a request from the 2019 Winter International Children's Games for a Jan. 8 parade on Main Street. The games will be held in early January. We also have coverage of an ICG technical commission's recent visit to inspect venues and lodging accommodations.

The winter sports seasons are starting to rev up for the United States teams. This week's Olympic Region Sports pages include previews of the U.S. alpine and luge teams, as well as early-season results from the international skeleton tour.
