Nordic combined team named

Steamboat Springs skiers Bryan and Taylor Fletcher headline a team of five Nordic combined athletes named to compete in the Feb. 18-March 1 FIS Nordic Ski World Championships in Falun, Sweden. Olympic champion Billy Demong (Vermontville, New York) was named to his seventh World Championships Team.

The Fletcher brothers have emerged as the team’s strongest athletes.

"Both Bryan and Taylor have shown that with a good jump they are among the fastest guys in Nordic combined and can compete for the podium," said Nordic Combined Head Coach Dave Jarrett.

In addition to the veterans, the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) named two first-time team members, Ben Berend (Steamboat Springs, Colorado) and Adam Loomis (Eau Claire, Wisconsin).

The Championships open in Falun on Feb. 18. The entire Championships schedule will be streamed live by the USSA at and will be available on the Live Arena Falun2015 mobile app in America.
