STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Steamboat’s Arielle Gold didn’t know until a week ago that she’d be going to the ESPYs.

But the Olympic bronze medalist will have the chance to walk the red carpet with her brother, Taylor Gold, at 5 p.m. Wednesday.

“I think for me it’s a cool opportunity to be around a lot of athletes I don’t normally get to be around,” Gold said.

Gold, a self-proclaimed die-hard Broncos fan, hopes to meet Von Miller and looks forward to reuniting with fellow Olympic snowboarders, like Kelly Clark and Chloe Kim.

“I haven’t seen Chloe since the Olympics,” Gold said. “I didn’t have an outfit until yesterday because I’m terrible at shopping and terrible at fashion, and I just followed her around for half an hour while she pulled things off the rack.”

As a Steamboat native, Gold takes pride in representing her small town on the big stage. While she’s not nominated for an award, she’s always wanted to go to the ESPYs.

“It’s not so much about getting attention; I just want to be a fly on the wall and be there for the whole experience,” Gold said.
