Maggie Voisin Tabbed for Olympic Winter Games
Whitefish native and 15-year-old freeski phenom Maggie Voisin will round out the U.S. Olympic Freeskiing roster after being awarded the coaches discretionary spot Tuesday afternoon.
Voisin joins the Sochi-bound slopestyle skiers after nearly punching her ticket to the Winter Games last weekend at a pair of Olympic qualifying events. She narrowly missed qualifying, and a question mark was left hanging as the much-talked-about coaches discretionary selections were finalized.
On Tuesday, that question was answered when it was confirmed that Voisin will join the best slopestyle skiers in North America to compete on the worlds biggest stage in Russia in two weeks. The formal naming of the 2014 U.S. Olympic Team by the United States Olympic Committee is set for Jan. 27.
