Gustie grad going to Olympics

ICYMI, I did a story on former Gustavus Adolphus player Marissa Brandt for Wednesday's paper. She is going to the Olympics to play hockey for the South Korean National Team. Brandt, who wears the name Yoon Jung Park on her jersey, was born in Seoul but adopted by a Minnesota couple when she was 4 months old.

The story of Brandt and her sister Hannah, who will be skating for Team USA, has been chronicled many times over the last few months (including this story by the Associated Press), but I was able to spend a few minutes talking to her on Tuesday prior to her team's exhibition game against Minnesota State.
