Hi. This is Ben and Sarah Olson.  We have been involved in MYSL since the ages of three and four.  We love to nordic ski, and we also love to run, play soccer, hockey, and many other sports.   We are lucky because all of our cousins and some of our friends like the same sports as us, and we get to ski and run with them a lot. Every now and then we travel to a new place because of our sports, and we love it. 


Young skiers from across the Midwest race on the Hap and Judy Lutter competition loop at Theodore Wirth Park in Minneapolis. Two days of racing, including a sprint relay and Ski-XC.

The Midwest Junior Championships is a joint venture of the The Loppet Foundation and the Minnesota Youth Ski League.
