Winter Games Athletes
Fry will accomplish her lifelong dream of playing in the Olympics, but she won't be able to share that Sochi experience with a close friend who hoped to realize that same goal. The 21-year-old forward has made it a tradition to hold the sweater of Liz Turgeon - daughter of former NHL great Pierre Turgeon, who was killed in a car accident in 2010 - to and from games. Fry and Turgeon met while competing for spots on Team USA's roster for previous international competitions and one day hoped to participate on the Olympic stage together. Though her friend won't be with her on the Russian ice, Fry is looking to make the most of her first appearance at the Games. She has nine goals and five assists in 33 international contests since 2008 and excelled in three seasons at Harvard, recording 44 goals and 45 assists in 89 games. Fry, who took this season off from college hockey so she could focus on making the Sochi squad, was named the Crimson's most improved player as a sophomore.
