RENO, Nev. (AP) - Nearly a dozen Olympic competitors from the Reno-Tahoe area aren't the only ones making the trip from the slopes of the Sierra to the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.

Two doctors from South Lake Tahoe are part of the medical team that is helping support two different U.S. ski teams at the Olympics opening Wednesday night.

Dr. Jonathan Finnoff, director of sports medicine at Barton Health, is a team physician for the U.S. Nordic Combined Ski Team, his second Winter Games in that role.

Dr. Terrence Orr is a surgeon with Tahoe Orthopedics and Sports Medicine. He's been the head physician for the men's U.S. Alpine Ski Team since 1999 and is making his fourth Olympic trip. He says it's quite an honor to have two Tahoe-area physicians involved.
