Swift Saturday: Canadian Invasion!

SMS T2 has had the pleasure of hosting the Canadian National team for two weeks while they do their late summer training block here in Southern Vermont. Andy, Simi and Ben have been hopping in on lots of sessions with the guys, sharing the wisdom and enjoying the chance to see a few new faces in training. Last night, the Canadians visited the SMS junior camp for a question and answer session and this morning the young athletes got to watch as the men and women did a World Cup sprint simulation. Photos below! Also, bonus, check out Annie Pokorny’s reporting for Ski Racing on the week here.
