Carina Crosby of Park City qualified for 2007 Deaflympics at the national trials held in Telluride. Colo. March 12-18. The final team selection was announced last week. Crosby, who is in the ninthth grade at Treasue Mountain International Middle School, qualified second in the giant slalom. The 16th winter Deaflympics will be held in Park City Feb 1-10, 2007. Crosby is looking forward to competing for the United States in her own backyard. "The hometown crowd will be a tremendous boost for me," she said. Crosby, who has a sister who is deaf, was born severely hard of hearing, but is now profoundly deaf. She received a cochlear implant in 2005 and that has helped her hearing enormously.
