Heading into her 3rd Olympics, Alaska trapshooter has big cheering section — the Chicago Bears by Beth Bragg
Heading into her 3rd Olympics, Alaska trapshooter has big cheering section — the Chicago Bears
Corey Cogdell-Unrein, Alaska’s Olympic medal-winning trapshooter, boasts an exceeding large cheering section as she heads into her third Summer Olympics.
Led by Mitch Unrein, a 6-foot-4, 306-pound defensive lineman, the Chicago Bears will be rooting for Cogdell-Unrein when she competes on Sunday.
Corey and Mitch, both 29, married in the summer of 2014. Mitch is in training camp with the Bears right now, so he can’t go to Brazil. But the team has Sunday off, and Mitch has organized a viewing party at the team complex in Bourbonnais, Illinois, according to the Chicago Tribune.
One, a Cessna 210, was operated by a student pilot with a certified flight instructor on board, according to Mike Hodges, an aviation accident investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board. It wasn’t immediately clear where the Cessna had originated from, Hodges said.
The other aircraft was a converted turboprop de Havilland Beaver registered to former Alaska Attorney General Charlie Cole of Fairbanks. A friend of the family said Cole was not flying the plane and not involved in its operation.
The Beaver’s door was marked with the logo of Fly Denali, a Denali Park-based flightseeing and climbing support carrier. People near the plane declined to comment Friday as did a staff member at the air carrier’s office.
“I don’t have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness—it’s right in front of me if I’m paying attention and practicing gratitude.”
“May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.”
“Habit simplifies our movements, makes them accurate, and diminishes fatigue.”
William James, The Principles of Psychology
“Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”
“Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict.”
If there was an abundance of misery in the world, there was also sufficient joy, yes — as long as one knew where to look for it.
“Nothing is more becoming to the mind than its own natural manner; from this proceeds its ease, its grace, and all its powers, whether real or apparent. All constraint injures it to force its springs, destroys it. We all carry about us indices of our destiny; these must not be effaced, but watched, if our career is not to be a miserable failure.”
