Thomas Westgaard-first podium for an Irish Cross-Country skier in an FIS race

January 26, 2018

Thomas came 3rd in the Austrian national championships on Saturday in Seefeld, the venue for next year’s Nordic Skiing World Championships.

This was a 2×7.5 km race, skiathlon where the first half is in freestyle (skate) and the second in classic. Thomas was third behind Spain’s best cross-country skier and a Bulgarian with no Austrians on the podium in their own nationals.

This is also the lowest FIS points for an Irish cross-country skier. All in all a great performance with less than 3 weeks to South Korea.
