One year from now, Vancouver will host the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games. The city is making final preparations to welcome the world, and three Utah athletes want to be there as a part of it.

They're competing this weekend in the Bobsled and Skeleton World Cup Events this week at the Utah Olympic Park.

Oakley's Steve Holcomb is now at the top of the bobsled world, while Orem's Noelle Pikus-Pace is trying to regain her number one spot in the skeleton. And Salt Lake City's Zach Lund is also trying to make a comeback after being suspended right before the Torino games.

The men's and women's World Cup bobsled competition continues on Friday and Saturday. Then, in two weeks, comes the season-ending world championships in Lake Placid.

After that, the athletes will have plenty of time to dream and train for Vancouver 2010.
