In his 10th year with the team, Grey has never skied in an Olympic year with such a strong men’s team. He is excited for the depth of the team and the prospects for team events. His focus being on the relays in the Olympics, he states “I want nothing more than to race a super 10km at the Olympics in the 4×10km relay.” He also adds that, although he may be third man right now for the sprint relay, he is still training to be strong in this event, should he be named to this team.
A slight set back occurred this fall with a foot injury that curtailed Grey for a month and is just now healing. Grey feels his fitness may have suffered a bit, but said he was able to work on his weaknesses during that time by doing a lot of core and double pole machine in addition to pool running. Grey is hoping with another week of rest his foot will be ready in time for Kuusamo. Meanwhile, Graham Nishikawa will race his relay leg in Beitostollen.
Looking forward to this season Grey says, “I want to have fun and stay relaxed while racing my heart out.”
