AST Athlete Journal: Caleb Brooks
Hello ski community, my name is Caleb Brooks. This is my second athlete journal. I am checking in from the airport shuttle on my way up to Whistler for the NorAm finals. The rest of the Team is driving up with coach Peter from Canmore. The boys are ready to finish the NorAm season strong! We’ve all had our ups and downs this season but I think we are all feeling good for this up coming race series. This past week, the team finished the Canadian nationals in Kimberley where the week started slow due to challenging weather conditions which led to the cancellation of the first two days of racing. That week, I managed to claim third in U19 for the superG race and shared the podium with Gered, who claimed the top spot for U19. That was very exciting! For the GS, I feel I skied one of my best runs of the season but unfortunately I was not able to finish the second run. I am happy with my SL results for that event and will keep pushing hard until the very end of the season. Jessie continues to prove once again that he’s a slalom wizard and skied very fast all week. Nathan had some pretty fast intervals with some good finishes as well. We hope that for this week at the NorAm finals, we can all step it up a notch and finish strong!
