Is this your first YJWCH? No I went last year to Romania, this will be my second. My best result last year was our 5th place in the relay, a 17th in the individual, 21st in the sprint, and 19th in the pursuit.

ABC: What were your goals and expectations going into trials?

AR: My goals going into trial were to ski fast as the course there is great if you have fast ski speed. 

ABC: Can you give a quick recap of how the races at trials went?

AR: The races went well, shooting was kinda below where I wanted it to be but the ski speed was there and as you know it was enough to make the team!

Congratulations to Adam and good luck in Slovakia!
