2021/21 Davis U.S. Cross-Country squad announced

U.S. Ski & Snowboard has announced the Davis U.S. Cross Country Ski Team nominations for the 2021/22 Olympic season. Nominations include those active athletes who qualified based on published selection criteria in the prior season.

The 2021/22 team is highlighted by an experienced group of World Cup, World Championship, and Olympic athletes, including Olympic gold medalist and 2021 FIS Overall Champion Jessie Diggins; two-time World Cup winner Rosie Brennan; and 2020 FIS Junior World Championship double-gold medalist Gus Schumacher.

Schumacher, who just two years ago was a member of the Development Team, moved from the B Team up to the A Team following a break-out season that included more than a dozen top-30 World Cup results. JC Schoonmaker, who was on the Development Team last season, also joins Schumacher on the A Team this season after posting numerous top 30 World Cup results. Diggins, Brennan, and Hailey Swirbul, who picked up her first career World Cup podium last season, were also nominated to the A Team.
