There is no “I” in TEAM. We are coming together. We are sharing the load. Above, Mike Glasder (L) and Peter Frenette (R) hoist Olympic Trials winner Nick Fairall after Sunday’s event in Park City.
USA SKI JUMPING
Park City, Utah
A lot has happened in 4 years. We have come together at the top and we are coming together at the grass roots. These have been humble and sometimes tottering first steps, and it is far too early to deem anything a “success” but it has certainly been progress. A momentum has been created. And it has come of tapping into that little piece of each of us that was- in one way or another- defined, nurtured or created by being a ski jumper.
When you start from virtually nothing you are forced to rely on the generosity of others. In the last four years we have witnessed many generous acts- too many to name here… and the exciting thing is that they seem to be contagious.
Thank you for your generosity. We are better together and the best is yet to come.
