Winter Games Athletes
Nordgren will make his first Olympic appearance as he is in his fourth season on the World Cup circuit. He burst onto the scene in the 2008 junior world championships, where he amassed four top-10 finishes with a bronze medal in the pursuit. He also competed at the 2010 junior world championships as he finished fifth in the mass start and sixth in the pursuit. That same year, he served as the anchor leg of a U.S. relay team that finished 10th and also helped the U.S. finish in 10th in the relay event in 2011 and 12th in 2013. His best individual finish in a world championship was a 17th-place showing at the mass start in 2011. A relative longshot to win a medal at Sochi, Nordgren will gain valuable experience for the 2018 Games - where he figures to be an improved contender.
