MONTPELIER (AP) - Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin and legislators are honoring the 19 Olympians with ties to Vermont who competed at the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Shumlin hosted five of them at a Statehouse ceremony on Wednesday.

The five - mogul champion Hannah Kearney of Norwich, Nordic skiers Ida Sergeant of Orleans, Liz Stephen of East Montpelier and Sophie Caldwell of Peru, and biathlete Susan Dunklee of Barton - also appeared before the House and got multiple standing ovations.

Shumlin told them that Vermont is incredibly proud of them and that he's proud to be their governor.
