Andrew Kurka goes to White House, meets President Trump
It's not every day you get to visit the world's most famous address, yet it must seem routine for Andrew Kurka.
The Palmer resident found himself at the White House Friday, as President Trump honored Kurka and nearly 200 other U.S. Paralympians and Olympians.
Kurka won a gold medal in the sitting downhill, also claiming a silver.
"It was a huge honor to be able to head out to the and to be able to crash the White House, with my friends and my teammates, to see the history and everything that surrounds it, again, it was a huge honor. There's a lot of stigma and negative around it, but, it's still meeting the president of the United States, our representative," Kurka said.
President Trump is the third president Kurka's met, joining George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
Kurka had some familiar faces at the White House with him, Alaska Olympians Reese and Logan Hanneman, and Tyler Kornfield.
