Canadian Home Course

FasterSkierSeptember 8, 2008

Getting ready for an Olympics close to home is a big advantage… and
we're using it!

Today my fellow US Ski teammers and I traveled out to the 2010 Olympic
cross-country venue, Whistler Olympic Park (becoming affectionately
known as WOP), for a team sprint simulation on skate roller skis.

Unfortunately the ski trails are not fully accessible by roller skis,
so the coaches improvised and we held the time trial on the access road
leading up to the biathlon stadium. Every time we lined up for the
start, we passed the giant stone inukshuk, reminding us that in just
under 530 days, we'll be here competing for Olympic glory.

Read the full report and view many more photos from the Time Trial, the visit to the Olympic Village, and the Whistler Bungee Jump.
