Jumping Farther, Skiing Faster
Today was the first day of competition in Chaux Neuve. I went into the competition confident. The jumping was a good comp I was able to jump 108 meters landing myself in 24th place. In the race I was feeling good able to ski up to 13th place, however on the last lap I hit the wall and couldn't quite hang on to the pack. I fell back in a sprint to the finish to 21st place. Still I am happy with my race it was a solid race and also I am happy to be inside the top 30. Since that has been my goal all season, I am happy I am one step closer to accomplishing that goal.
Tomorrow is our last comp of this tour before world championships. So my goal is to get another result inside the top 30 and I will be a happy camper. And will head into World Championships with some confidence and excitement. So I will update again tomorrow as soon as I can after the race!
