It’s a genuine honor to represent the United States at an international sporting event and that’s why we’re especially proud when it’s one of our own. Named by the US Ski Team as a Support Technician for the upcoming U23 / FIS World Junior Championships in Kazakstan is a three-year CXC coach, Andrew Keller.
Keller, 24, from Chanhassen, MN is honored to have been selected to work at the event noting at the US Cross-Country championships in Houghton, Michigan that he is thrilled to lend a hand at this upcoming event. “I have been working hard towards a goal like this for a few years now, and I am both pleased and honored to be selected. Now my goal will be to do all I can to see that US athletes can achieve their personal goals on this trip”, Keller said.
CXC Executive Director Yuriy Gusev said that he was very proud of this honor for Coach Keller saying today “I am very, very proud of what Andrew has accomplished in a relatively short time. He works very hard, and never loses sight on his coaching goals and how to help athletes improve. This is an honor for Andrew and an honor for CXC that its coaches are recognized as among the best at what they do.”
