AST 2020 Athlete Journal: Jamie Casselman

Hello all,

We have just finished our fall camp in Hintertux. Everyone worked hard and I feel like we all have seen improvements in our skiing. We were lucky to have hard snow and clear skies for most the camp.

Two other highlights of our camp were going to the waterslides and watching the World Cup in Soelden. We went to the waterslides on our day off and had a great time. It was a good break from skiing and it helped us refocus for the last few days. On the last day, we watched the Men’s WC GS in Soelden; a new experience for many of us. Seeing all my childhood heroes in action was a pretty surreal experience for me. It was exciting to cheer on the Canadians and see them do so well. Erik Read got a career best result of 7th, Trevor Philp scored some WC points, and Riley Seger started his first WC race. It was also inspiring to see some young up and comers contend for the podium. It’s motivating to see that our younger generation can be competitive with the best.

Hope you enjoy the video!
