Adirondack native nordic combined ski racer, Bill Demong, placed second Saturday in a World Cup Nordic Combined event in Italy. This second place finish moved Bill up to second place overall in the World Cup standings. The Nordic combined genre of skiing is when the participant competes in a ski jump, and then cross-country ski races, with the ski starting position based on his performance in the ski jump. Traditionally, the United States has not been a ‘powerhouse’ country in this event. The Fins and the Germans tend to do well since ski jumping is to Finland as baseball is to the United States. Bill has been a ski racer and jumper since elementary school and has worked hard to make it to the top of his sport. And, he is a very nice young man. Way to go Bill!
