Published on: 1/8/2014

Hales Corners — Hales Corners native Alyson Dudek is going to the Olympics a second time.

She made the cut, grabbing one of three spots on the short-track women's speedskating team on Sunday.

Dudek was on the bronze medal-winning, 3,000-meter relay team in 2010.

To help pay her way to Sochi, she created a donation page at Her goal is to raise $15,000 to offset training expenses. Different donation levels will be privy to different swag, personal email thank yous and Twitter shout-outs.

As a result of her 2010 performance, the Friends of the Hales Corners Park & Pool raised money for — and opened — the Alyson Dudek International Ice Center. The rink is open and free to the public from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the Hales Corners Park every day.
