Pete Vordenberg and Chad Salmela remember Nikolai Annikin..
I met Nikolai and Antonina at the USOC in Marquette where they were coaching. Over the years I spent up there I was fortunate enough to receive some coaching and advice while an athlete both at NMU and the USOC from Nikolai and Antonina. I was not one of their athletes but I did seek out their advice and advice was freely given. It was a formative crew of coaches I worked with up there and I have certainly taken from all of them to form my own style of coaching now as well as ability as a skier then. Man was I lucky.
