This article was short and sweet and very helpful. It was written with the help of the 2006 gold medal Olympian, Chandra Crawford. It was very helpful because I'm on the cross-country skiing team and sometimes I feel frustrated that I can't go as fast as the others, or I feel like I'm working too hard to get the push I need. This article stated some practical ideas that will be easy to implement and will hopefully make me a better skier. If you are interested in cross-country ski racing, you should definitely read this article.
