Jaelin Kauf addresses a crowd gathered at the Driggs City Plaza for her welcome home ceremony on Friday, April 8.

Jaelin Kauf won the silver medal for the U.S. in the women's moguls at the winter Olympics in Beijing in February. Kauf grew up in Alta, Wyoming, on the western side of the Tetons, and was welcomed home with several community celebrations last weekend. 

Kyle Mackie of KHOL in Jackson, Wyoming, got the chance to chat with Kauf about her experience in the Olympic COVID bubble and caring for her mental health while competing on the world stage.
