The Utah Winter Games (UWG) has added a new sponsor. According to UWG executive director Heidi Hughes, The Shea Foundation has offered to sponsor permanent ski racing bibs for the youth racing series. The foundation honors America’s "First Family" of the Winter Olympics. Jim Shea Jr., was a gold medallist in skeleton at the Salt Lake Games. His father, Jim Sr., competed in Nordic combined for the U.S. Team in the 1964 Games in Innsbruck and grandfather Jack Shea won two gold medals in speedskating for the U.S. at the 1932 Games in Lake Placid. Shea Jr., lives in Park City and says the foundation’s purpose is to carry on the Olympic legacy by providing education, publicity, and equipment for today’s youth to participate in speedskating, ski jumping, and skeleton. The Utah Winter Games are the oldest and biggest amateur winter sports event in the country. They continue the legacy of 2002 in Utah by making it possible for large numbers of people of all skill levels to have a wonderful time with winter sports. In the 2005-2006 20th anniversary season, more than 3,000 people took part in 20 competitions in 15 sports and 32 instructional clinics.
