Fun in Gangwon

Well, that was a whirlwind and fun trip to Gangwon! Estella had a great time participating in the Olympic experience. Made new friends and got to explore the convenience stores of Gangnueng. Not much time for real exploration…

Placed 16th in the individual event and 7th in the team. And her teammate, Josie Johnson, claimed the silver! It was a great moment for Team USA. There is an awesome Team USA article that highlights Estella and Josie’s experience on competition day and worth the read!

Estella is back in Madison and then heading out west to prepare for the upcoming FIS Junior World Championships in Planica, Slovenia – here’s USA Nordic official press release for the team nominations.

Heading to the Youth Olympic Games!

Estella is officially headed to the 2024 Youth Olympic Games in South Korea next month! It is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to represent the United States in this event. Here’s the official press release from US Ski and Snowboard.

Opening ceremonies are January 19, and there will be two days of competition on January 20 (individual) and January 21 (mixed team). A live stream of the YOG will be at starting with the Opening Ceremony. Or, it looks like it might be easiest to download the Olympics app and watch on there.
