Stories: Race Around the World

As part of our ongoing series called Sports that are Not Football, here's a snow sport that's literally cooler than the Olympics: the annual "Race Around the World."

Penn State physicist Doug Cowen was there for this year's big race, and has this report. For Doug Cowen's audio diary and more photos of the Race Around the World, click here
