The competition, known as North America’s equivalent to the European Cup, has been an important part of Olsson’s goal to reach the 2014 Olympics. The victory doesn’t just mean that Olsson will have start number 31 in all the European Cup GS races next season; he is also a step closer his Olympic dream.
Olsson had a tough training schedule last fall and therefore he chose to take a well-needed brake in the middle of the season. Despite yesterdays run which did not reach his expectations, Olsson is still very satisfied with the overall achievement.
‘It felt great to be back and to be standing at the starting gate. I feel good and I am very motivated and ready to work and train hard until the very last snow has melted away’ Jon Olsson says after the race.
