Tread of Pioneers Museum presents: “Fighting for Flight: Three Local Women Make History in Nordic Combined”
“There is but one sport standing in the way of gender equality at the Winter Olympics: Nordic combined. Every other sport features men and women, but Nordic combined, a sport that combines ski jumping and Nordic skiing, is only available to men — at least for now.” Steamboat Pilot and Today
The sport and three local athletes, Annika Malacinski, Tess Arnone, Alexa Brabec, debuted at the World Cup level and in the World Championships this year, the latest benchmarks toward the International Ski Federation’s (FIS) goal to get the sport in the 2026 Winter Olympics.
Meet the local athletes, hear their journey, and ask questions on a live Zoom on April 29 at 5:30 pm. Link to the live online Zoom event: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84619572782
