Julia Kern continues to add top results to her racing resume, including a bronze medal from the 2017 FIS Junior World Championships where she was a member of the 4x3.3k relay team.
Q: What is your favorite memory as a competitor?
A: My favorite memory is huddling in a circle with Katharine, Hannah, and Hailey at the finish line of the Junior World Championships relay in Utah, where we realized that our dream of winning a medal we had made two years ago at training camp just came true.
Q: Who is your favorite athlete?
A: Kerry Walsh
Q: When you're not skiing, what are you doing for fun?
A: Anything outdoors, whether it be climbing, hiking, surfing, mountain biking, swimming, beach volleyball or shooting hoops outside! Non-athletically, I love to do photography and film.
Q: Are you involved with any nonprofits, charities or social causes? If so, tell us why you're involved.
A: National Winter Sports Education Foundation (NWSEF): I think it is important to get as many kids out on skis to give it a try without the barriers of having to purchase all of the gear. Anything to get kids active outside and having fun is really awesome!
