The Enterprise –– Michael Koff
Like a flying squirrel: Landon Livreri, of Lake Placid, soars with his skis in a V pattern to help him aerodynamically push through the air to go further during one of his two jumps during the Under-13 division at the Empire State Games last weekend. Livreri won Gold with a score of 216.2 and jumped 47-and-a-half meters.
The Empire State Winter Games lasted from Feb. 6 to 9 and featured athletes from across the state in Olympic events in a region that has twice hosted the international games. A north country tradition, the Saranac Winter Carnival, coincided with the Games and was celebrated this year with a Celtic Carnival theme.
