West, Mazdzer and Morris secured their Olympic nominations by virtue of their results this season. He finished 22nd in Sochi. I knew I could win here in Lake Placid. Mazdzer, who was eighth in Friday's men's singles race, had earned Tier C status based on finishes from previous World Cup events. "These were normal World Cup races these last five races, but having that extra stress of trying to qualify for an Olympic team, after you put so much work into it for four years, it's definitely a burden". The seven-time national champion, who also has 10 career individual world cup medals, is ranked No. 22 in the world cup standings. On his second run, Repilov lowered West's track record by another 0.029 seconds.
Congratulations to Ridgefield's own luge hero, Tucker West who has just qualified for the 2018 Olympic Team in Luge. He finished seventh in the standings the past two seasons.
