Love on an Olympic Stage

Elena Hight and Greg Bretz have a lot in common. Hight, 20, and Bretz, 19, are the two youngest members of the Olympic halfpipe team, and they were the final two riders to qualify in their respective fields for the trip to Vancouver. Not surprisingly, they’re both considered huge underdogs as well.

Apparently, there’s even more to this bond. Yes, the two youngest riders on the Olympic Halfpipe team are officially a couple. And on the surface they certainly seem to be lifting each other’s game. They both performed well during the high-stress season of qualifying. If they can handle that they should be fine taking on the world.
