U.S. Ski & Snowboard Nominates Alix Wilkinson To Alpine Team Roster For Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022
United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee, in conjunction with U.S. Ski & Snowboard, today announced the addition of alpine skier Alix Wilkinson to the 2022 U.S. Olympic Team.
She replaces the quota spot previously held by Breezy Johnson, who was injured on Jan. 21 in a downhill training run crash at Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.
Wilkinson, 21, hails from Mammoth Lakes, Calif., and skied for Team Palisades Tahoe. She recently scored her first FIS Ski World Cup points, with a top 20 (18th place) finish in the Cortina d’Ampezzo downhill in just her seventh career World Cup start. She followed that up with some more World Cup points and a solid finish in 24th in Saturday's Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany downhill.
