Nordic Combined Athlete
Jumping Farther, Skiing Faster
Our team is here in Kuusamo, Finland. Our first day of training is over. It feels good to get the first official training of the season out of the way. Today was tough the gate was low and the wind was a bit all over the place but all in all it was a very good comp. Our team is look ahead with optimistic thoughts for the weekend. All of us have had some good jumps and know that we can be competitive this weekend. Tomorrow is our first comp and Saturday will be the second comp. The first competition weekend of the season is pretty crazy. Since this is my first time to the opener it's been a new experience for me.
The weather is extremely cold and the sun hardly shines up here. I know we have had good weather for Kuusamo so far and we are hoping it stays that way. The internet is a bit scarce up here so stay tuned and I will try to update you as quickly as possible about the next two days competitions!
