TOMAHAWK, Wis. (AP) -- A Tomahawk woman has been selected to coach cross-country ski athletes at the Special Olympics World Winter Games in South Korea.

Bonnie Kahn anticipates it will be "exhausting and exhilarating at the same time." It will be Kahn's fifth appearance as a Team USA coach.

Kahn and her three athletes from Wisconsin, Illinois and Delaware will be together for the first time in December for a training session in Lake Placid, N.Y. Although separated by miles, they've already started training for the games Jan. 29 to Feb. 5, 2013.

The Wausau Daily Herald (http://tinyurl.com/9pmhhay ) says Kahn was named Special Olympics coach of the year in 2001.
