Managing Expectations with Hannah Halvorsen and Hailey Swirbul The Cross Country Skier Podcast

    • Sports

Fresh off their Olympic debuts, U.S. Cross Country Ski Team members Hannah Halvorsen and Hailey Swirbul candidly discuss how they deal with performance pressure as elite competitors, the stress it puts on a healthy mindset and their different takes on balancing a desire to win with positive self-worth. The conversation expands on a piece Halvorsen penned for Issue 41.3 of the magazine: “Medals Matter, But They Don’t Define an Athlete.” The skiers also cover topics that range from handling “the high school hallway” of social media and why Norwegian skiers are so good to whether men approach pressure differently and the evolution of team dynamics and role modeling among the U.S. women.
