2012 Season Summmery & Years End

The first half of the season is over and it's been very exciting so far. From the first race in Salt Lake City to the last race in Whistler I've competed in 9 races in just over a month. I was able to finish strong in Whistler (my home track) with 2 top 10 placings in the Intercontinental Cup (9th, 7th) and 3 top 3 places in North Americas Cup (1st, 2nd, 2nd) building momentum for the second half of the season. Currently I'm taking 2 weeks off from the sliding track as the facility is closed for the holidays and then the World Cup Luge will be held in Whistler for a week. Starting January the plan is to train full time in Whistler working on some of my weaknesses in the hopes to be in the best form for the World Championships in St. Moritz Switzerland. This will be the first time this year I'll have time to try different lines, equipment, and work on my push start. After climbing up in FIBT ranking from 100th last year to 26th place in the world, I've settled at 30th and hope to stay there for the end of the season. Please stay tuned for  more updates and Photos as the season goes on and feel free to email me for anything regarding skeleton and or the season.

Thank you for your support and Happy Holidays,
