There are more stories, laughs, and memories than the racers tonight. Our xc skiing champion and Team Strong Heart elite skier, Matt Liebsch, came and celebrated with the skiers and friends his Olympic season. Away from his family, friends and supporters for months, Matt thanked everyone, recounted his journey and mission to support and bring awareness to the chariy Camp Odayin. As a recognition of Matt's ambassadorship and his achievement, Silent Sports Foundation did a matching donation to Matt. Matt has been an inspiration to many skiers.
