On March 3, 2010, senior Rebecca Wong finished tenth in the
Massachusetts state high school alpine skiing championships, the final
medal position. Or so she and everyone else on the slopes thought. When
Wong watched a film of her slalom run afterwards, she realized that she
had missed a gate near the bottom of the course and should have been
disqualified. Race officials had not seen the miss, and neither had any
spectator. What happened next made Rebecca January's youth sports hero.
