Roz Goenewoud

It means so much. After the tribute on Thursday, I am so proud to be a skier. The outpouring of support has been amazing. I felt like I had Sarah with me. She has been a teammate for so long. This is for Sarah.

Maddie Bowman

Honestly this is kind of shocking, it is just now sinking in. It’s great and I am honored to be able to go out and ski like Sarah would have wanted.

Brita Sigourney

I am always happy to be on the podium. It was definitely stressful today and I don’t usually ski well under pressure but I pulled it off today.
