Sochi Update: Results for our Local Olympians

Feb 27, 2014

Four SkiErgs in the Dry-Fire room in the Endurance Village at Sochi!

We’ve been following our Vermont local Olympians through their competitions in Sochi. Two athletes are members of the US Cross Country Ski Team, and two are members of the US Biathlon Team. The US biathletes brought a SkiErg along for the last few weeks leading up to Sochi and used it for specific strength workouts. When they got to Sochi, they were pleasantly surprised (as we were!) to find four SkiErgs in the dry-fire room!

Here’s a summary of their results:
