Jan 24, 2022   |   Dartmouth Sports

Engineering majors AJ Hurt '23 and Tricia Mangan '21 are two of the six skiers from Dartmouth named to the Olympic Team.

At the end of last week, U.S. Ski & Snowboard revealed its nominations for the cross country and alpine team rosters for the Beijing Winter OIympics next month, and six skiers from Dartmouth — alumni and current students — are among the chosen athletes. Nominations are to be confirmed by the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee when it formally announces the U.S. Olympic Team later today.

Four of the six will compete in the alpine events, including a pair of first-time Olympians in AJ Hurt '23 and Nina O'Brien '20. Tricia Mangan '21, a two-time first-team All-American for the Big Green in the giant slalom, is back for her second Olympics after competing in Pyeongchang in 2018, placing ninth in the alpine team event.
