Kennesaw, Ga. (AP) -- Olympic hopeful Dani Loeb says she's optimistic that police are able to recover her custom skis, helmet, jackets and other gear stolen in Atlanta now that two suspects are in custody.

The two men were arrested this week, but police haven't said whether they've been able to recover the gear belong to Loeb, a member of the U.S. National Ski Team. She's hoping to get the items back before Wednesday, when she will try to qualify for the Winter Olympic Games in Beijing.
