Noah Hoffman, US Olympian and US Ski Team member, worked with the Dublin Nordic Ski team earlier month, sharing his well-honed dry land training techniques.
Noah Hoffman became an Olympian in 2014 after seven successful years on the US Ski Team. As if the honor weren’t enough for the Aspen native, Hoffman was a contending player in Sochi’s 50k freestyle mass start, hanging with the lead pack and asserting himself as the new face of U.S. distance skiing.
In addition to an impressive Olympic debut, Hoffman also finished 9th in the Ruka Triple Stage World Cup 15k freestyle pursuit. He tacked that on to a 2013 season where he saw a top-10 finish at the Cranmore World Cup stop, and two top-15 finishes in just his second World Championships appearance. Hoffman earned his first national title in 2012 and a silver medal in the U23 World Championships in Turkey in the same year. Hoffman continues to get stronger as the years go on, and used a gutsy Olympic performance to prove to himself and the rest of the world that he belongs. The 2015 World Championships could be a pivotal moment for the young skier, who looks to continue shaking things up on the big stage.
