I'm posting this in response to the news that I've been named to the national ski team. I'm really happy that my process and my results last season have secured me a spot. However, the announcement implies that I'm fully-funded, which I am not. My funding situation is unchanged and Team Larisa is my means to continue a World Cup career. It's a successful structure and requires immense generosity and faith. I continue to look for efficiencies by merging with another country's program. I will forever be proud to race under the Canadian flag, however, I will need to make up for the Team Larisa budget shortfall and put the fun back in fundraising.
Please share this post in celebration of your support for a breakthrough season and an even better one next year!
