Winter 2018 Olympians

AMC Outdoors magazine | Jan/Feb 2018

While AMC Outdoors might not have the readership of Sports Illustrated or ESPN, I was convinced we could get Olympic hopefuls to respond to a few questions about growing up as athletes in the Northeast—if we reached them ahead of the fray. For this feature, somewhere between a writing assignment and an exercise in dogged persistence, I started contacting folks in summer 2017. I’ll give this story a silver: We featured the likes of Kelly Clark, Erin Hamlin, and Adam Rippon, but we didn’t manage to snag any hockey players. There’s always 2022.
