In August of 2002, I had major hip surgery in Nashville Tennessee. During the surgery, my doctors discovered an alarming amount of arthritis in my left hip and they questioned my chances of continuing as a full time athlete.Since that time I have been supplementing with Syn-flex and I’m relieved to report that I have had no further hip issues. Simply put, Syn-flex is the best Glucosamine/ joint health supplement on the market. If you have any joint problems, I strongly suggest giving Syn-flex a try. Another significant point about this company is that they helped me out long before I was competing on the World Cup and I think that says a lot about the people running this company.
This is my fifth year representing the Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA). ORDA runs all of the 1980 Olympic venues in Lake Placid and they host many World-class events each year. Representing ORDA is special to me because I get to wear a Lake Placid logo on my rifle. I am very fortunate to represent the area where I grew up and where I currently train. Check out ORDA’s website for all upcoming events in Lake Placid!
I have been competing on Rossignol skis and boots for my entire career. For me, Rossi is one of the only ski companies with great skis for every snow condition and the boots are a perfect balance of comfort and racing technology. I start every World Cup fully confident that I will be on some of the best skis in the race.
This will be my second year competing with ONE WAY poles and I have been very happy with their product. ONE WAY is the only pole company that is dedicated to making solely nordic poles and that focus definitely shows!
I don’t use many supplements because I feel that most are actually not helpful and contain too many artificial ingredients such as sweeteners. In my opinion, Athlete Octane stands out as an endurance supplement because they use only proven ingredients and they don’t add any of the garbage that so many other supplements contain. Perhaps the most important for me is that Athlete Octane is guaranteed to be clean of any banned substances! Click the logo to give it a try for yourself!
