U.S. Ski & Snowboard announced today its nominations for the U.S. Olympic Nordic Combined Team to represent Team USA at the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022. Nominations are to be confirmed by the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee when it formally announces the U.S. Olympic Team.

The team is headlined by three-time Olympian Taylor Fletcher, looking for his first Olympic podium. Fletcher’s top Olympic finishes include sixth-place in the Team Large Hill/4x5km and a 20th place result in the Large Hill/10km Individual competition at the 2014 Sochi Games. Fletcher will be accompanied by 2018 Olympian Ben Loomis, who was 10th in the Team Large Hill/4x5km in PyeongChang, and 2018 Olympian Jasper Good. Jared Shumate and Stephen Schumann will make their Olympic debuts.

The winner of the 2021 Olympic Trails in Lake Placid, New York, decided the first spot on the U.S. Olympic Nordic Combined Team. Additional spots on the team were chosen based on athletes' results at FIS World Cup and Continental Cup events during the 2021-22 winter qualification period.

Nordic Combined has an action-packed schedule at the 2022 Games. The first of three medal events kick off on Wednesday, February 9, with the Individual Gunderson Normal Hill/10km competition, followed by the Individual Gunderson Large Hill/10km on Tuesday, February 15.

ATHLETE QUOTES:

Taylor Fletcher
Getting named to my fourth Olympic team after winning the Olympic Trials is a big motivation for me. As the veteran athlete of the U.S. Nordic Combined Olympic Team, I want to make the most of this Olympics with my best results. Knowing that my spot is secure will allow me to focus on training and competition to make sure I am in the best form going into Beijing 2022. The Olympics are always a big focus and have been since I started the sport many many years ago. I feel confident I can go there and have my best results yet. We will have a young team but a team for the future, which is very exciting. Look out for nordic combined in the coming weeks!

Ben Loomis
I am extremely proud to have been named to the 2022 Olympic Team. It will be a true honor to represent both USA Nordic and the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program in Beijing. Amongst the current state of COVID-19, it will be great to bring the world together in a safe manner and showcase what the Olympics are all about. I couldn't be more excited to have a team of both experienced Olympians and athletes heading to their first games alongside me in Beijing.

Jasper Good
I am incredibly honored and excited to be named to the 2022 U.S. Olympic Team. Representing Team USA at this Games means even more to me as a member of the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program (WCAP). The support and camaraderie I have gained from WCAP have helped me reach new levels. It will be an honor to represent the U.S. with this added factor. I am really excited about how much progression our team has made and can’t wait to perform with my team in Beijing!

Jared Shumate
I am honored to be selected to represent the USA at the 2022 Olympics. It has been a goal of mine since I was a kid to compete at the Olympics, and I am overjoyed to officially be selected to my first Olympic team. I feel like I have made some big steps forward in the last few months, including scoring my first World Cup points in Predazzo, Italy, which qualified me for the team, and I am looking forward to keeping the momentum going into Beijing! I’m excited to compete with the rest of my teammates at the highest level of sport and am looking forward to experiencing my first Olympic Games, even though COVID is making these games a bit different than previous years. In the weeks leading up to the Olympics, the goal is to stay healthy and train hard!

Stephen Schumann
I’m beyond excited for the opportunity to represent the USA at the upcoming Olympics in Beijing. It has been a dream of mine to compete at the Olympics since I first stepped on a ski jump at 5 years old. To think that the dream I had as a little kid is coming true 16 years later is surreal, and the fact that I get to do it with some of my best friends makes it so much better. I could not be more excited! Thank you so much to everyone who has believed in me and helped me get to this point through all the setbacks and hard times; it wouldn’t have been possible without you. Now, time to buckle down and polish things up before heading to Beijing!

COACH QUOTES:

Nick Hendrickson – Men’s Nordic Combined Team Director
“With the nomination of our 2022 Olympic Team, I am extremely excited to have every one of these athletes selected to represent the USA in Beijing. I am proud of each individual for their accomplishments throughout the qualification process, but I am most proud of the teamwork that has been invested behind the scenes to raise our competition level. Collectively, our team is composed of four-time Olympic veterans, two-time Olympians, as well as first-timers; we have a lot of both experience and opportunity in this group of talented guys. The team momentum that we have at the moment is contagious and we can't wait to keep it rolling into Beijing!”

Cashman Top 25 In Zauchensee Super-G

Keely Cashman finished 23rd in the Zauchensee, Austria super-G, her best result of the season.

Cashman posted career-best results in the Val d'Isere speed series in December of 2020, improving on her downhill finishes in 16th and 17th to grab her first top 10 in the super-G. Soon after, a crash in training forced her to sit out the remainder of the World Cup season. Since her recovery, she's been fighting to regain confidence in a race on the World Cup circuit. Sunday's finish reminded her what she is capable of.

“I am really happy with the way I skied today," commented Cashman. "It has been a struggle trying to gain confidence back after my crash last season, so this result is a big step. I felt confident in myself today and was just able to send it and ski the way I know I can. This is another step forward, and I hope to take this feeling into Cortina next week.”

Teammates Mo Lebel and Tricia Mangan finished outside of points. Jackie Wiles and Alix Wilkinson did not finish. Breezy Johnson did not start due to a small injury sustained during training prior to Zauchensee. The top three finishers of the day were Italy's Federica Brignone in first, Switzerland's Corinne Suter in second, and Austria's Ariane Raedler in third.

Next, the women's speed circuit heads to the famed downhill track in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy, as the men prepare to take on the Hahenkahmm in Kitzbuehel, Austria.

Cochran-Siegle Leads U.S. Men in Lauberhorn Downhill

Under the shadow of the Eiger mountain, Ryan Cochran-Siegle was the top American at the second classic FIS World Cup downhill in Wengen, Switzerland, finishing 15th.

Austrian Vincent Kriechmayr came back from a COVID-induced absence to win the longest downhill on the World Cup, causing controversy, given that he did not participate in the mandatory downhill training runs that took place during his quarantine and were still allowed to race. Local Swiss skier Beat Feuz took his second podium in two days in second place and Dominik Paris of Italy was third. Reigning overall World Cup leader Marco Odermatt of Switzerland was just off the podium in fourth.

While Cochran-Siegle was eighth in Friday’s downhill and was looking to build on the result, the long days of downhill training, a super-G, and two downhills took a toll, along with wearing bib 18. “The compounding days of racing and high intensity of skiing—today was day five—is always tough,” said Cochran-Siegle. “The later you start, the harder it also is. For Travis, Bryce, and I and Nyman too, we all had later start numbers relative to the early guys. You gotta overcome that and ski. Those all together could make a pretty good difference on race day, but you still gotta go out of the start and charge and give it your all and do as best as you can.”

Bryce Bennett, who was seventh in Friday's downhill, also finished within the points in 21st. Jared Goldberg was 32nd, Travis Ganong 34th, Steven Nyman 42nd, and Sam Morse 44th. 

The tech team competes on Sunday in Wengen for the men's slalom, while the speed team next heads to Kitzbuehel, Austria for the most famous World Cup on the circuit. The U.S. men are looking forward to the storied event. “I’m just really trying to build and gain confidence—focus on the key things, on the important things, just moving and the cues that work for me,” said Cochran-Siegle. “For Kitzbuehel, I’ll keep focusing on that—focus on the skiing and try to enjoy it too.”

Three Women In Top Six At Deer Valley World Cup

By Mackenzie Moran
January, 14 2022

The pressure was on for the U.S. women's mogul team in the final Olympic qualifying event of the season, with six women qualifying for the first final to be held on the Champion course and four women on the brink of securing an Olympic bid. Olivia Giaccio, Elizabeth Lemley, and Kai Owens finished just off the podium in Friday's super final at the Intermountain Healthcare Freestyle International at Deer Valley Resort. Tess Johnson, Hannah Soar, and Jaelin Kauf did not qualify for the super final. 

Soar and Kauf, who met criteria to be nominated to the 2022 Olympic team prior to the Intermountain Healthcare Freestyle International, qualified for the first final, but not the second, finishing seventh and 14th respectively. Between Johnson, Giaccio, Lemley, and Owens, competition for a shot at Beijing was tight. 

Giaccio led the fight for the third criteria spot heading into Deer Valley, so it was imperative for the women who wanted to compete on the Olympic stage to do well in order to secure their place on the team. Johnson just missed the cut to compete in Friday's super final and finished the day in ninth, leaving the podium open for Giaccio, Lemley, and Owens. Unfortunately, none of the U.S. women could capitalize in the super final, and the trio finished fourth, fifth, and sixth. 

21-year-old Giaccio, who made history in the Tremblant World Cup when she became the first woman to ever land a cork 10 in World Cup competition, and secured a World Cup win in Ruka in December, objectively met criteria when she and her teammates came up short of a podium in the super final.

"The contrast between the last Olympic qualifying season and this one, it's been so much more fun this season and I've just been kind of leaning into the pressure and performing the way that I want to," commented Giaccio. "All I really wanted to do was ski three clean runs the best that I could and I'm really happy with my process and how I accomplished that; there's a lot of great women's skiing out there today."

15-year-old Lemley and 17-year-old Owen's final scores suffered from small kick-outs. They finished the day fifth and sixth.

Brad Wilson and Cole McDonald qualified to represent the U.S. in the men's final but did not make the cut to fight for a podium in the super final. Wasatch Freestyle alumni and Park City local McDonald finished 15th. Wilson just missed the top six mark, finishing seventh overall in the final Deer Valley World Cup of his career. 

"I literally was crying. I was talking about it all day, that this was my last time here at Deer Valley, and I was fine," said Wilson. "Then as soon as it actually happened, knowing it was my last run here, I just lost it. This place has been so good to me, this course is incredible, the event is so much fun, and it's such a legendary place and I'm just so happy that I was able to be a part of it."

Bennett Seventh, Cochran-Siegle Eighth in Wengen Downhill

Bryce Bennett and Ryan Cochran-Siegle scored top 10s on one of the most storied downhills on the FIS World Cup tour, taking seventh and eighth, respectively, in Wengen, Switzerland.

The podium was full of favorites on a sunny day on the Lauberhorn, with Aleksander Aamodt Kilde of Norway nailing the win by .19 seconds—his fifth win of the season. Marco Odermatt of Switzerland finished second after winning Thursday’s super-G and his teammate Beat Feuz—the 2020 Wengen champion—was third. With his victory, Kilde took over the lead in the downhill standings, while Odermatt still has control over the overall.

Bennett had a tough start of the season, struggling with his equipment setup until he burst onto the podium to win the downhill in Val Gardena. Though he expected to do well at Bormio, one of his favorite tracks on the World Cup and one where he’s had top results in the past, he again had issues with his gear. But he and his tech dialed it in for the race down the Lauberhorn track, which resulted in one of his best finishes of the season. “We made some major adjustments to the way we were prepping the skis before we came here,” said Bennett. “The first training run was my best training run all year and I felt pretty good, so it was just getting some confidence back in that.”

Bennett also clocked the fastest speed on the track, hitting almost 94 mph on the Haneggschuss pitch—and he was stoked about it, reminiscing on advice from his former teammate Marco Sullivan. “I remember after Marco retired, he sent a text message out to our whole group—I’ll never forget it,” laughed Bennett. “He was explaining the whole course and he goes, ‘When you hit the Haneggschuss, you better tuck like you love going fast.’ I always think about going as low as possible and going as fast as possible. It’s not often you get to go that fast and I enjoy it.”

Cochran-Siegle also had a banner day, scoring his second-best downhill finish of the season, finishing in eighth—his best result on the Lauberhorn. But he knows he has more in him and will look to improve on the result in Sunday’s downhill.

Travis Ganong also finished in the points, taking 20th. Steven Nyman was 44th and Sam Morse 47th. Following his crash in the super-G, Jared Goldberg was nursing a sore ankle and knee and did not start. Erik Arvidsson also did not start, as he's dealing with some nagging back pain, and has shifted his focus to the Hahnenkamm at Kitzbuehel, Austria next week. 

The men race downhill again Saturday to wrap up the classic speed races in Wengen before a slalom on Sunday.

We are excited to collaborate with Delta to help maximize overall sport inclusion, athlete support and advocation for women’s equality within the sports industry.”

A significant part of the partnership will be the implementation of several female empowerment initiatives embodying spirit, strength and inclusion. Delta is the founding partner of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Women’s Mentorship Program, which pairs women from the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team with women at Delta to meet monthly.

Delta will also collaborate with U.S. Ski & Snowboard to create content with athletes and host community events. Additionally, Delta is supporting individual athletes, including 7-time World Cup podium alpine skier Breezy Johnson, as well as five other Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls. 

“We are thrilled to rejoin U.S. Ski & Snowboard ahead of the Olympic Winter Games 2022 to assist with athlete travel and the Women’s Mentorship Program,” said Molly Battin, SVP, Global Brand Marketing at Delta. “With years of experience working with the team under our belt, we know that each year will be better than the last in improving athlete experience as they go for gold.”

Along with its partnership of U.S. Ski & Snowboard, Delta is the airline partner of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) and will commute Team USA athletes to the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 directly to and from Beijing on charter flights.

Olivia Giaccio, Elizabeth Lemley, and George McQuinn scored top results for the U.S. Freestyle team in Thursday's mogul competition in the Intermountain Healthcare Freestyle International at Deer Valley Resort. 

Both Giaccio and Lemley pushed through the top 16 women into the super final by staying strong after their air landings but could not repeat their execution in the fight for the podium. Giaccio ended the day in fifth, followed by 15-year-old Lemley in sixth.

"I think my performance in the first two rounds was definitely good, and the top half of my supers run, I was trying to charge as much as possible," commented Giaccio. "I was excited about my competitive process throughout the day, and I'm looking forward to continuing that tomorrow and getting that speed up a little bit." 

Tess Johnson, Hannah Soar, and Kai Owens did not qualify for the super final and finished 10th, 15th, and 16th, respectively. 

As the sole representative of the United States in the men’s superfinal, George McQuinn pushed down the course, ready to give his run everything he had for a chance to secure a spot on the men’s U.S. Olympic team. Unfortunately, McQuinn entered his second air in the backseat, hitting the back of his head on the lip of the jump and knocking himself out in the process. He immediately received medical attention and is currently responsive and in stable condition.

Nick Page qualified strong in second, but unfortunately did not compete in finals due to an injury sustained during finals training. His teammates Bradley Wilson, Cole McDonald, and Joel Hedrick qualified for finals but could not break into the top six for a shot at the podium in the super final. Wilson finished the day in tenth, followed by McDonald in 14th, Hedrick in 15th, and Page in 16th.

With a chance to compete in Beijing on the line, the competition is fierce headed into Friday's final Olympic trial event. Soar and Jaelin Kauf have already met criteria. The third women's criteria nomination slot is still in play. Athletes will return to the Champion course with ferocity on Friday in hopes of staking their claim on an Olympic bid.

Spyder, Eric Haze Debut U.S. Alpine, Freestyle, Freeski Team Olympic Uniforms

By U.S. Ski & Snowboard
January, 12 2022
Spyder

Spyder, one of the world’s most recognizable active lifestyle brands, today unveiled the U.S. Alpine Ski Team, U.S. Freestyle Ski Team, and U.S. Freeski Team uniforms for the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022.  The U.S. Olympic Alpine Team nominations will be announced on Jan. 20, and U.S. Freestyle and Freeski Team nominations will be announced on Jan. 21.

Spyder, which is owned by Authentic Brands Group (ABG), has been an official apparel partner of the U.S. Ski Team since 1989 and will be represented by more than 60 Olympic athletes. The uniforms are designed by world-renowned artist and designer, Eric Haze. Haze is a New York City native, who has lent his unique artistic style to everything from album art to internationally recognizable brands.

“It’s such an incredible honor to put my fingerprints on the U.S. Alpine Ski Team, U.S. Freestyle Ski Team, and U.S. Freeski Team uniforms, especially when they’ll be wearing them on such a huge world stage as the Beijing Olympic Games. I can’t wait to see the teams actually competing in them," notes Eric Haze.

Inspired by the American flag, the collection features outerwear, base layers, and accessories that are sustainable, technically advanced, and stylish. Eric’s iconic lettering, signature STAR icon, and hand-painted pattern work can be found on all the collection pieces.

“February of 2022 will be our ninth Olympic Games outfitting the U.S. Ski Team and with each Games, our goal is to provide products that give our athletes a competitive advantage while incorporating comfort and protection from the cold,” said Brady Collings, Global GM of Spyder. “This year is no exception and working with Eric Haze has allowed us to bring a fresh design perspective while infusing the technology and performance the athletes and the team expect from Spyder. This collection will give our athletes the edge they need to perform at their best and bring home the gold.”

The 2022 Spyder Team Collection is outfitted with Spyder’s latest technology and highest-performing materials to date. Every detail of all 29 styles of the collection including the apparel and goggles were developed with direct athlete feedback and uses discipline-specific functionality.

“Spyder and Eric Haze have created an amazing collection by blending fashion and function that represents the U.S. in all aspects — allowing our athletes to look and feel their best,” added Wesley Chu, SVP of APAC, Spyder, and Volcom at ABG. “We look forward to watching them compete next month.”

All outerwear styles are composed of Gore-Tex fabrics, Primaloft ECO insulation, and YKK zippers. The U.S. Freestyle Ski Team and U.S. Freeski Team outerwear uses 100% recycled polyester fabric with Gore-Tex Laminate and PFCecFree DWR and PrimaLoft SilverECO insulation, and the U.S. Alpine Ski Team outerwear uses a brand new engineered woven face fabric with Gore-Tex Laminate and PFCecFree DWR. A new baselayer technology will be introduced as well, in a cut-resistant, proprietary Kevlar/graphene stretch knit pant.

For the first time in Spyder’s history, the brand designed, developed, and produced an aerials one-piece kit and a skier cross race suit, both of which use individual athlete measurements to optimize performance and fit. The fit in the pants and training shorts in all three disciplines was designed to optimize comfort, warmth, and performance specific to each sport. The center-back full-length zipper on the alpine athletes’ outerwear jacket increases the functional fit while the athletes are wearing their back protectors and race suits during pre-race warmups. To complete the uniform, Spyder and Eric Haze partnered with Dragon to design the NFX Spyder Goggles. The goggles feature a frameless lens providing added peripheral vision giving athletes the ability to locate the best lines on the mountain. In addition to the googles, a new optical style that comes in a classic, modified rectangle shape and three metal colorations will also be making its debut.

Members of the U.S. Freestyle Aerial Ski Team gave it their all in the Intermountain Healthcare Freestyle International at Deer Valley Resort in hopes of earning one last strong result before heading to the Olympic Winter Games in Beijing. U.S. athletes Kaila Kuhn, Winter Vinecki, and Chris Lillis all qualified for finals but were unable to stick the landing on each of their respective tricks to qualify for the podium round. 

The competition was fierce, as athletes looked to take advantage of a challenging event that acts as perfect training for a performance on the world’s biggest stage. The women’s podium saw three different nations take the stand, including Australia's Laura Peel who threw a Full Full Full to take first, followed by China's Fanyu Kong in second and Belarus' Hanna Huskova in third. China dominated the men’s podium with Xindi Wang in first, Longxiao Yang in second, and Jiaxu Sun in third.

Despite finishing in 11th overall, Vinecki, who has already achieved the criteria necessary for nomination to Team USA, is happy to be healthy and is hungry for more training as her focus switches wholly to Beijing 2022.

“We got some really good training here in Deer Valley and that's just what I needed before we head over to Beijing,” commented Vinecki. “Obviously would have loved to get on the podium but I'm healthy and happy we get to train one more week [in Park City] before we head over. This event is always tough as expected, we always know it's going to be great. Getting some good double-ins in training and getting really consistent with those is really important here and I'm just going to keep doing that at the UOP.”

Kuhn, who finished 10th, has achieved criteria for nomination from her third-place finish at 2021 Intermountain Healthcare Freestyle International, which served as an Olympic tryout event for these athletes. She will continue to train a new trick that she had hoped to perform if she qualified for the super final as she prepares for the Games. Megan Nick has also achieved criteria to be nominated to the team. 

Lillis had already achieved criteria to represent the U.S. men, alongside teammate Justin Schoenefeld. Given his strong position headed into Deer Valley, an 11th place finish was disappointing, but not devastating. The sole representative of the United States in the men’s final went for a double-Full Full Full and held off on the quint twist that he has been sticking in training.

“I thought that I put a really good jump together, had a good take-off, and it was right there,” reflected Lillis. “Unfortunately every once and a while you get caught up in the snow, you go over the back, you go over the top, and that's what happened to me today. We had a really solid week of training, I was able to get up a degree of difficulty, do some big tricks, do another quint twist this week. From that final jump, there's not too much I'm going to take away from it but a solid week of training and looking forward.”

Nick, Karenna Elliott, Ashley Caldwell and Dani Loeb did not qualify for women’s finals.

Derek Krueger, Eric Loughran, Justin Schoenefeld, Connor Curran, Quinn Dehlinger, Ian Schoenwald did not qualify for men’s finals.

Competitions continue at the Intermountain Healthcare Freestyle International on Thursday, Jan. 13, with the first of two mogul World Cups at Deer Valley Resort, the final Olympic tryout events for those athletes.
