Norway nominates SGP 2014 team
The Norwegian Ski Federation has nominated five athletes for the Summer Grand Prix 2014: Olympic Champion Jørgen Graabak will start at the first SGP stop of Oberwiesenthal together with his teammates Haavard Klemetsen, Jan Schmid, Thomas Kjelbotn and Magnus Krog.
After the competitions in Oberwiesenthal, the team will head to Oberstdorf for a training camp and not take part in the mid-week competition in Villach. Mikko Kokslien, who skips the competitions in Oberwiesenthal, will meet the team in Oberstdorf so that a team of six Norwegians will be on the start for the final two competitions of the summer of 2014.
„This will be the first competition period after the winter and it is always exciting where we stand compared to the competition. It will be great to compete with the rest of the top athletes and it is our goal to deliver good performances“, Sports Director Sverre Rotevatn says.
