World Cup experience for Marshall

Salmon Arm’s Alysson Marshall is one of three who have been selected to the World Cup Convergence group.

Cross Country Canada has just announced that Salmon Arm’s Alysson Marshall is one of three National Development Cross-Country Team athletes who have been selected to the World Cup Convergence group.

Writes Marshall on her blog:

“My life has gotten a lot more exciting in the last couple weeks – I have been selected to be on the CCC Convergence Group for some FIS Scandinavian Cups and World Cups! This is a program where additional athletes are added on to World Cup trips to provide more international experience. Kevin Sandau, Drew Goldsack and I are the three convergence trip athletes…

I am flying to Ostersund, Sweden on Nov. 6. It looks like we will do some FIS races in Bruksvallarna, Sweden and Rovaniemi, Finland the first two weekends. Then I will hopefully get to race a three-day mini-tour World Cup in Kuusamo, Finland. The final weekend will be World Cups in Dusseldorf, Germany before flying back to Canada on Dec. 5. I am incredibly excited for this opportunity to race in Europe to get some more World Cup starts. I will get back to Canada just in time for the start of the Canadian racing circuit with NorAms in Vernon.”
