XCFeedsOlympians “Give Back” at SMS Camps

Avatar Sverre CaldwellAugust 25, 2010

We were honored to have 3 Olympians work with us at the Stratton Mountain School summer camps last week. All three offered different, but healthy perspectives on our sport and it is great seeing them give back to their sport. Thank you Justin, Sue and Andy for helping at the camps!br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/THWHc80Q2sI/AAAAAAAAEOM/yfEcOKMpwzk/s1600/IMG_7557.JPG”img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px; height: 300px;” src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/THWHc80Q2sI/AAAAAAAAEOM/yfEcOKMpwzk/s400/IMG_7557.JPG” border=”0″ alt=””id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5509458650589092546″ //aJustin Freeman gives some pointers during a classic workout. Justin started skiing early, but he was a late grower and he never was quite fast enough to make the JO team. He ran and skied through High school and developed a strong training base. He made great strides at Bates College and later qualified for the USST and the 2006 Olympic Team. Justin helped at the Jr camp and talked to us about his skiing experiences and how he now manages to have a family, be a teacher and still ski fast.br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/THWF9iqbLvI/AAAAAAAAEOE/qjjDcEbeZao/s1600/IMG_6653.JPG”img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px; height: 300px;” src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/THWF9iqbLvI/AAAAAAAAEOE/qjjDcEbeZao/s400/IMG_6653.JPG” border=”0″ alt=””id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5509457011480932082″ //aSue Long Wemyss leads a group during the morning run. Sue went to Stratton Mountain School as an alpine skier. She was tough as nails and earned the nickname “muscles”. Sue switched to XC skiing when she started at Middlebury College and her athletic background and unrelenting determination helped her make the USST and go to the Olympics. Sue helped at the BKL camp and offered some great insights into the joy of competition.br /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/THV4uPsoUOI/AAAAAAAAEN8/PpH4NnibpUM/s1600/IMG_8085.JPG”img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px; height: 300px;” src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_H2SCM3lmKm8/THV4uPsoUOI/AAAAAAAAEN8/PpH4NnibpUM/s400/IMG_8085.JPG” border=”0″ alt=””id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5509442455040708834″ //aAndy Newell chats it up with the boys before they start some more specific strength. Andy came to SMS as an 8th grader and quickly showed that he was fast. He placed in the top 10 at World Jr. Championships 3 years in a row and was named to the USST straight out of High School. He has been competing on the World Cup circuit for the last 6 years and has made steady progress towards his goal of being the best in the World.br /Andy helped at both camps and everyone got a chance to ski with him and hear stories about his racing experiences. When he is in the East, Andy is a regular at our SMS workouts and he is an ispiration to everyone.div class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/4680416899705879324-125794640749586540?l=smsxc.blogspot.com’ alt=” //div
