The 2022 Winter Olympics begin Friday in Beijing, with dozens of New Englanders hoping to grab gold in their respective sports.
Here’s a look at four skiers with New England ties on the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Team who will be competing in freestyle events, as well as their Instagram handles in order to follow their journeys on social media.
Megan Nick, of Shelburne, Vt., is in her sixth year on the U.S. Ski Team. The former gymnast finished the last two seasons ranked in the top six overall in the world in aerials.
“I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity and all the people who have helped get me here because this wouldn’t have been possible without them,” Nick said. — @megsnick9
