Meanwhile at the Olympics, former Seawolf siblings Sadie and Erik Bjornsen raced in the Olympic pursuit races with mid-pack results. This isn't the Olympic Blog (this is the UAA Blog) so I'm not going to spend the next two weeks talking about every Olympic result associated with UAA because I'd be filling up all the pages with Olympic stuff. But I will say this: While I was foaming at the mouth last month talking about all the former and current UAA skiers who are competing at the Olympics, one recent UAA skier flew completely under the blog radar: Brian Gregg. Brian skied for UAA in 2005 and 2006, and was an NCAA All-American in 2006. Brian raced in the pursuit yesterday at the Olympics, and it's a pretty solid bet he'll race in the 50k race on the final day of the Olympics. (Link to Brian Gregg's Blog) And it's my understanding (based on what I heard on the monster TV mounted on the side of the Performing Arts Center downtown on Friday night) that Anna Berecz is qualified to race in all Olympic alpine events, so keep an eye on the women's alpine racing.
As for me, I went back to the Chugach Mountains yesterday and found more than a foot of new snow. Pretty sweet.
