World Junior Championships

Word Juniors Davos
Well, I made the team!  The US World Juniors Team.  This time I would get to represent my country at the most prestigious event for Junior Alpine Ski Racers in the world.  I didn’t know what to expect, I just knew I was going to give it everything I had.

Davos by far was the most beautiful place I got to visit in Europe.  The 360 degrees of breathtaking mountains were just unbelievable.  I am so fortunate that I got the opportunity to ski there.

Our team had set several goals for ourselves including achieving top 10 results and to end up in the top 5 for the team competition.  It was a great feeling to be able to contribute to the team achieving its goals.

I ended up 4th in the SL.  It was one of those days where everything came together.  I started Bib 22 and after a fast first run found myself in 7th.  Pushing out of the start on my second run, I just knew I was going to be fast.  Landing in 4th was a great feeling, especially knowing I skied against the best junior skiers in the world.
