Training in Bozeman paid off for three athletes who competed in this year’s 2018 Paralympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Kendall Gretsch, from Wisconsin, spent months prior to the March events working out with four other Paralympians at Bozeman’s new Crosscut Mountain Sports Center in the Bridger Mountains, working on her sit ski skills and biathlon shooting. The result is she won the first gold medal ever for a U.S. Olympic competitor in the biathlon. Not a bad start for a first-time Paralympian.
