I'm also surprised that she's the only mom from the US team. I wonder how many moms are competing in the Olympics in total?
Marit Bjoergen, to name atleast one.
I had never heard of Kikkan Randall before your link, but I think you can now proudly say YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST :-)
(And I can ride on your coattails of being oh-so-ahead of the pack)
Cool name too, wonder whether there will be lots more little Kikkans in future
I've heard of Kikkan :) Raced and trained for some local XC ski races here in Seattle with her uncle Chris I think few years ago, Right around Vancouver Olympics. If I remember he was also an olympian.
Kikkan has been racing in the World Cup since 2005 and won several sprint races there + also World Champs in 2013.
This only shows how little coverage the sport gets in US.
