Local Skier Billy Demong Wins World Cup

It is a pleasure to report great news like this. Bill Demong, a local cross-country ski racer and ski jumper won his third Nordic Combined World Cup last Saturday in Norway. A born and bred Adirondacker, Bill was a contemporary of my son and started ski racing and jumping when he was an elementary school student. He trained locally on the Olympic trails at Mt. Van Hoeverberg and at the Olympic Ski Jumping Complex in Lake Placid. I will never forget the parent/child ski jumping competition when Bill’s father Leo, had such a good time. Way to go Bill - and congratulations Helen and Leo.
