The new points list came out and guess who’s #1 in the world in Downhill? Way to go Chris Devlin-Young!
Chris is well known in Waterville Valley as the box office manager/jack-of-all-trades for the Theatre Under the Stars and a Waterville Valley Adaptive Sports board member.
Chris will be heading to Sochi, Russia soon for the Paralympics! We’ll be able to watch and cheer for Chris and his TeamUSA teammates because NBC Olympics and the United States Olympic Committee will present an unprecedented 52 hours of coverage of the upcoming Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games across NBC and NBCSN including 27 hours of live coverage, beginning with the Opening Ceremony on Friday, March 7 at 11 a.m. on NBCSN. TeamUSA.org will also live stream all events from the Paralympic Winter Games.
In other Chris Devlin-Young news, he was recently named the first ever recipient of the Jack Benedick Leadership Award from the No Excuses Foundation. Jack was the pioneering and driving force behind the creation of the sport of adaptive ski racing and a personal hero, coach, friend and mentor to Chris. Jack passed away last year at the end of the ski season, but his memory lives on in the spirit of every disabled veteran who finds a return to thrills, chills and freedom in the sport of alpine skiing.
