Congrats to my fellow Nordic Olympic Teammates! - UPDATED

This week the majority of our Nordic Olympic Teams have been named. Most of us have been skiing together since we were young, or come from the same region, others have raced with us recently, like Caitlin Compton, who is now on the XC team, and the rest we've all gotten to know through our close-knit nordic community. Most of these athletes make their way through Placid at one point during the year, either for training camps or competition, and we all get to look for one another on Eurosport while racing on the World Cup circuits. Now, we'll all be under one roof and a part of 1 team at the Athlete's Village and at Whistler Olympic Park in just under a month.
