PYEONGCHANG, South Korea – Our Winter Olympics correspondent Aaron Nolan has made good on a challenge from one of his KARK 4 Today co-hosts.
During Thursday morning’s show, D.J. Williams told Aaron if he could get a selfie with Team USA alpine skier Lindsey Vonn, he would give him $1,000..
It would be an honor to write a check for $500 to @lindseyvonn. And as for @AaronNolanNews I’m sure we can go double or nothing on something 👍🏽😁 https://t.co/egiYgbEsap— D.J. Williams (@dj45williams) February 22, 2018
As Aaron’s luck would have it, he was able to run into Vonn and get the photo with the Olympic legend. Earlier this week Vonn made the podium in PyeongChang and took home a bronze medal in women’s downhill skiing.
The completion of the challenge then led D.J. to put his money where his mouth is:
Well @AaronNolanNews lived up to his side of the bargain and I’m a man of my word! Just donated $500 to @lindseyvonn foundation and Aaron you will have a nice homecoming gift awaiting you!👍🏽 🇺🇸#lindseyvonnfoundation #LindseyVonn pic.twitter.com/5mJm8kdym8— D.J.
