If you’re like us, you can’t get enough of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics and have been tuning in every night to watch athletes perform amazing feats from the comfort of your sofa. In our experience, 5,000-meter races are best enjoyed with a glass of wine.

If that scenario’s all too familiar to you, take note: next Wednesday, February 19, you have a reason to get off that couch and meet a real Winter Olympian. Five-time Olympic medalist (’06 and ’10) and world champ speed skater Chad Hedrick, who hails from Spring, is making an appearance at IW Marks from 6:30–7:30 p.m. (The event runs from 6–8 p.m.) He’ll be signing autographs, taking photos, and answering questions about his spectacular career. To attend, simply RSVP at IW Marks’ Facebook page.

Oh, and in case you were wondering: the store will be airing the Olympics on a large flat-screen TV, and there will be small bites and drinks available. Sold!
