Young Sailors take to Lake Dillon for Junior Olympic Event | Youth sailors participate in a race during last year's Junior Olympic Sailing Festival on Lake Dillon. The U.S. Sailing event, now in its second year at Lake Dillion, is the country's only Junior Olympic race hosted at an inland lake.
Women first competed at the 1900 Paris Games.
