The 2018 World Junior and U23 Championships were a major success. Skiers skied their way into the history books! With a double podium by Hailey Swirlbul and a first ever silver medal in the relay for the World Junior Men. Gus Schumacher, Luke Jager, Ben Ogden and Hunter Wonders. The entire team proved dreams do come true.
The National Nordic Foundation sponsors this trip by donating over $50,000. In a society where funds are hard to find, the NNF raised money through the community and gives it to development. The success is starting to show! Great job to all the Athletes and Coaches. Great job USA!!
The NNF's mission is to support athletic excellence in developing nordic athletes in the United States.
“To the NNF: The assistance has been an absolute necessity for me and the increased level of support played a role in the performance levels that U.S. skiers produced last year.”- Holly Brooks
