The 2014 Canadian Nordic Combined and Ski Jumping teams were named during a Team Naming Breakfast at Winsport earlier this week. The Nordic Combined team will consist of two athletes only: Wesley Savill and Nathaniel Mah.

Without a national coach in Canada, the two athletes plus Rogan Reid, have had very different summers and therefore, the current plans are just focussed on the Continental Cup opener in Park City. „The three of us have all made separate plans for the competition because we all had such different summers. And because we're self funded, where we travel this winter is decided on how much money we're willing to spend. The three of us are aiming to be at the Continental Cup competitions in Park City“, Nathaniel Mah explains.

„My plan for the winter was to travel and train with the USA B team to the Continental Cups as well as the Junior World Championships. But I am still struggling from concussion related symptoms and unable to train. Because I have been out of training for so long, I’m really only looking to do the Park City COC, and Junior Worlds“, Mah continued. „Hopefully by then my head will be good enough to compete.“
