Today was our last day in Greenland. A day for sprint racing.

The volunteer course workers were great.

This was my favorite performance of the day from one of our skiers.  Eli stabbed himself in the leg and broke his pole near the start of the semifinal. Nevertheless, he kept after it and managed to win the battle for fifth place in the heat with a lunge at the finish line.  That's the kind of effort and persistence that I really like to see in sport.
After the race, Eli told me he had a good race despite the broken pole and was satisfied with his effort and his battle for fifth.
We are scheduled to leave for the airport at 3:15am! The boys are watching a movie while they wait.
