Crystal Wright Wins Freeskiing World Tour

 

Crystal celebrating a podium finish earlier this season.

Congratulations to Crystal Wright who won the Freeskiing World Tour on April 7! 

You can read all about it on the Freeskiing World Tour site, but Crystal’s been fighting  hard and staying hydrated this year, and we’ve been cheering her on every step of the way.

(From the Freeskiing World Tour)

Heading into the finals, the ladies field was filled with suspense, as the battle for the McConkey Cup came down to Crystal Wright and Angel Collinson’s final run of the season. Posting a huge score of 34.23 today was Jackson Hole’s Crystal Wright, as her combined two-day score of 63.90 clinched both the event win, and the overall 2012 tour championship. 

“Winning both today was surreal,” said Wright. “Angel and I had so much fun pushing each other all season. The girl’s game is being upped every year and it is so great to be a part of this tour.”

 

We talked to Crystal a bit about her season, on how hydration comes in to play. It’s always great to get the athlete’s take, especially from one who clearly knows how to get the job done.

“Hydration during the competition season is so important, because when I become nervous I get incredibly dehydrated! I always carry a bottle of Tri-berry or Fruit Punch to drink before my run, and at the finals this year it was Fruit Punch all the way! 

I also use Nuun in my training at the gym and for ski touring and climbing, It is also great when I am traveling all over the world for competitions and in and out of the airport. Travel is dehydrating and in some of the places I have been the tap water is incredibly chlorinated or a little funky so Nuun does the trick!”

Winter sports can be misleading because athletes often forget the hydration is more than drinking water. That coupled with the fact that cold weather can be even more risky than warm weather when it comes to staying hydrated! But luckily we’ve got Crystal up on the slopes throwing down smooth runs and always remembering to stay hydrated.

Meet Nuun’s 2012 Hood To Coast Team

 

Last year the ladies on the Nuun Hood to Coast team – along with the Nuun staffers – shared lots of laughs, many miles, even more tweets, and formed some lifelong friendships in the process. The experience was one of a lifetime for everyone, and this year we’ve added on a third team to triple the fun.

Reviewing all of the amazing candidates was an honor. It was no easy task to select our team because every applicant was so deserving. However, after hours of viewing and thoughtful consideration, here are the ladies who will be joining us in 2012. The list of 30 team members and 6 alternates are in no specific order. Be sure to check out their blogs, congratulate them and wish them happy miles!

We are truly so excited to introduce this year’s Nuun-fanatic, all female blogger team for Hood to Coast 2012. All 6 vans will be part of Team AfterNuun Delight. Welcome to the Nuun family, ladies!
