On the sidelines of the recent youth sports leadership summit, something flitted at the edge of my vision.
I looked down and a small boy waved up at me, flashed a smile and slipped back to his nearby seat.
He curled up his legs and tucked into his dad's arms -- a dad who looked very familiar.
A few minutes, later I sat in the empty chair behind the boy.
He peeked through his fingers at me. Then through a handle in the top of the chair. Then again.
His father smiled and reached out his hand.
That's when I remembered who he was: the Olympic skater, Mark Ladwig.
"Do you skate?" I asked the little boy, who his father introduced as 5-year-old Holden.
Too shy to answer, he leaned into his smiling father.
As I stood up to leave, I got another small wave.
