Olympian Set For Prairie Du Chien Parade
Sliding head-first down an icy tunnel at more than 100 miles an hour might be
one of the scariest events you can see at the Winter Olympics. But a Prairie du Chien native has mastered the skeleton sled run well enough to win an Olympic medal. Matt Antoine is back in Prairie, just three weeks after the end of the Sochi Winter Games. Antoine tells WKTY's Matt Skradie that there's one Olympic sport which scares him...an event that's popular in Westby:
Antoine will appear in a St. Patrick's parade in Prairie du Chien this weekend, and will be honored tonight at a community reception where Governor Scott Walker is scheduled to be one of the guests.
