New Assistant Coach Leslie Krichko

I'm thrilled to announce that we have a new assistant coach - Leslie Krichko will be joining us in August!  Leslie is a Maine native and two-time Olympian ('80 & '88).  She helped UVM to a national championship, qualified for multiple World Championship teams, and raced numerous World Cup events over a 12-year stint on the national team.  After winding down her international racing career, Leslie moved to Connecticut where she built a career in realty and raised three children.  Luckily for us, she's now ready to move back to Maine and jump back into the ski world!  Leslie brings a huge range of experience to our program - in addition to her rich ski racing background, she's held a variety of coaching/instructing roles in skiing, rowing, hydrofitness, and youth exercise programming.  We're so fortunate to have a person of Leslie's stature joining our team - she has a deep well of knowledge to share with our team, and I can't wait to work with her.  Bowdoin Nordic's bright future just got brighter!
