Temperatures Above Zero for Freestyle Sprint

At 8 A.M., with two hours to go before the start of the women’s qualifying round of the 2010 National Championships in the freestyle sprint, the temperature at Kincaid Park in Anchorage is four degrees fahrenheit–in the stadium. Barring a pre-race plunge, this should provide enough of a cushion above the -4F cut-off to allow the event to start on time. FasterSkier erroneously reported last night that Kris Freeman would be a favorite for the men’s sprint today; this is false, as he is not entered in today’s event. Here is a short video from the venue: [kml_flashembed movie=”http://www.youtube.com/v/wI6JZMOdCpM” width=”425″ height=”350″ wmode=”transparent” /] To view today’s start lists, click here. FasterSkier will be bringing live coverage throughout the day here, starting with the women’s qualifying round at 10 AM AKST/2PM EST.
