Jumping Farther, Skiing Faster
Today was the first race of the weekend. Second day of competition in Lahti, Finland. Strong winds made it impossible to jump and we were forced to use the provisional jump. With a strong jump in the provisional I ended up in 4th place. I was able to ski a strong race and hung tough working my way into podium position. In the last Kilometer I was overtaken by two skiers and had to fight for 4-8th place. I was able to beat a few guys and end up 7th overall. I am happy to obtain my 4th top ten this season and extremely motivated for next weekend in Oslo. I hope to improve upon what I have already done this season and finish on an even higher note!
Thanks for all the support. There is no way I could do it without everyone involved in my life! Check back next week for hopefully some more good news!
