The Competition Starts in Laiwu

The Team Marches in the Opening Ceremony

7:36am CDT (10:36pm China Time) – This afternoon’s competition was kicked off with an opening ceremony with local officials. What we thought were fireworks were actually confetti canons. The crowd here is much more substantial than in Beijing and at this moment, we’re being featured on the local news, so there is potential for even larger crowds tomorrow, when we ski in the morning and afternoon. The skiing this afternoon went well and we’re currently ahead by 2 whole points. If we ski clean, there’s a chance we could hold on to that lead!
