Simi Hamilton has been in three podium since then in sprinting. Very few men step in a distance podium, ours incredibly difficult. A number of athletes have been top 30 in WC. Erik Bjornsen has been the most competitive in distance with many top 20 results and some top 15.

US men were 9th and 12th least weekend in the 15km skate race. Women had 2 goods. US skiing is doing great

US women are slaying. Seems like our women's team is also bigger. Results going deeper.

Our guys -- maybe one or two at the races.

Heck, I'd say any kind of results where we're "in there" even remotely close is awesome. Top 30 you're in the game.

Maybe our overall program is pretty thin so the odds are that sometimes there will be quite a few more women doing well. Smaller program has bigger swings for better and worse.
