For the last month I've been overseas racing. I didn't have internet most of the time during World Cups so here's an update on my progress so far. Your help has been greatly appreciated. I returned from World Cups with two gold medals! The Olympic trials are just around the corner and I have five weeks to prepare. None of this would be possible without your donations and encouragement. I am really excited about earning a spot on the Olympic team and representing the US in Sochi.
Russia World Cup, gold medal
Back in the USA!! After a long trip for his Asia World Cups Chris is back with some hardware!! A gold and Silver in the mens relay! However, during the gold medal relay race chris was hit in the face with one of the rubber track markers (blocks) and it broke his nose. He now has to save enough money to pay for the procedure to allow him to get his nose fixed so he can breath through his nose. Chris is still cleared to train and compete in these next World Cups in Italy and Russia. Please keep sharing and thank you for your support.
After another long weekend, Chris finished 18th in the 1500m, 6th in the 500m and team USA is bringing home a SILVER to add to their GOLD from China!! It was a great couple of World Cups with alot of improvement and lessons learned. Now, for the long travel back to Utah to prepare for the next two world cups in November located in Torino, and Moscow!!! #teamcrev
