USA Nordic Sports announced its team nominations for the upcoming 2017/18 season on Thursday.

Kevin Bickner, who set a new US distance record in Ski Flying with 244.5 m in March in Vikersund and gained some attention with good performances at the end of last winter, is the only athlete of head coach Bine Norcic to achieve A Team status for next season.

Michael Glasder, Will Rhoads and Casey Larson were named to the B Team, Nicholas Mattoon and AJ Brown are on the C Team of USA Nordic.

"We've got a good, young team. They had a few strong results toward the end of the season last year and we're looking to build on those going into the Olympic year", Team Director Clint Jones is quoted on usanordic.org.
