Flexibility, strength and conditioning, and great reach are just a few things that give an athlete – especially a SOTX athlete – that competitive edge.  That’s why Winter Games competitors got put to the test in Wellness Park, a fitness component of the Games that examines athletes’ physical ability, vision, hearing and foot health at no charge.  This weekend, volunteers from across the country are in Austin to perform several different agility checks on hundreds of Winter Games athletes.  From sit-ups and leg lifts to toe touching and marching in place, Wellness Park volunteers are measuring everything from speed to balance to control - everything they’ll need to bring home the Winter Games gold! 

Competing?  Take a break between rivalries and visit Wellness Park at Highland Mall between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
