On the road to Olympic gold

Lyndsay.jpegAlumna Lyndsay Young, class of 2015, PT, DPT, ATC, a resident of Park City, is physical therapist/athletic trainer for the U.S. Ski Team's top gold medal hopeful, Mikaela Shiffrin.

Lyndsay was part of the team that helped Mikaela of Vail, Colo., win the 2017 FIS World Cup overall title. It was a historic moment in ski racing. Only four other Americans have won the title since its inception in 1967: Phil Mahre, Tamara McKinney, Bode Miller, and Lindsey Vonn. Among that group, only Vonn has won more races – one more – to claim the title.

Lyndsay, Mikaela, and the rest of the U.S. team have been focused on World Cup races since the end of October. Their attention will shift to the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in February. The College of Health is following them through an extraordinary racing season.
