Tracy Barnes sacrifices her Olympic biathlon spot to sister Lanny

This is a letter from Olympic biathletes Tracy and Lanny Barnes.

Dear Family & Friends,

Tracy made the ultimate sacrifice and now her story is being talked about around the world. Please see below.
Sunday, I (Tracy) was named to the Olympic Team! I cannot think of any greater honor in the world, save one… Lanny fell ill during the trials and was unable to race enough of the races she needed to qualify for the Olympic Team. She is having a stellar year and I for one want to see where she can take it…what heights she can climb to. So, in honor of friendship, cooperation, and sacrifice I declined my spot on the Olympic Team. This freed up a spot so that Lanny could be named to the team.
Tracy and Lanny will be appearing on the Today show tomorrow as well as a few other shows throughout the day. Please feel free to tune in and share our story.
