Nordic Nation: Post Surgery and Pre-New Start it’s Andrew Musgrave

Jason AlbertJuly 24, 2020

Mid-Summer and mid-fishing session, we connected with Great Britain’s Andrew Musgrave near his home in Trondheim, Norway. Musgrave underwent surgery on both Achilles tendons recently and is on the mend.

In this episode, we discuss his comparatively down season last year, his plans to remain healthy, and how excited he was during the interview to spot what he described as a weasel swim past.

If you are new to the podcast, FasterSkier, or Musgrave…here’s some background. Musgrave is 30 years old, hails from Scotland but spent part of his youth in Alaska, and took a big leap in ski performance when he moved to Norway. He came oh so close to a medal at the 2017 World Championships in Lahti, Finland — he placed 4th in the men’s 50 k skate in a tight race to the finish for the top-six spots. (Canada’s Alex Harvey pulled out the win.)

He regularly contests the Norwegian National Championship races, which are packed with talent, and remains a podium threat.

Thanks for reading and listening.
