The National Cross-Country Ski Education Foundation has pledged to fund all U.S. athletes who represent the country at the 2011 World Nordic Ski Championships and whose expenses are not funded by the U.S. Ski Team.
Dave Knoop, NCCSEF director, stated that “the World Championships are the premier nordic competition outside of the Olympics. We wanted to make sure each athlete who qualifies for the Championships could focus on their preparation for the games, and not worry about covering the cost for this trip.”
The World Nordic Ski Championships will take place in Oslo, Norway from February 23 to March 7, 2011. For more information, visit www.oslo2011.no/en/
