WE ARE LAKE PLACID podcast: Jim Leahy, USA Luge

LAKE PLACID - Almost three years after New York state promised to give USA Luge $5 million to help build a new start ramp in this town, construction began in April.

That means vacating the luge team's headquarters on Church Street and moving temporarily to the Mirror Lake beach house on Parkside Drive until the project is done in early November.

In late March, just before the move, Editor Andy Flynn sat down with USA Luge CEO Jim Leahy to talk about the project and why it's a game-changer for the U.S. luge team.
