3 Illinois Residents Have Qualified For U.S. Men's Olympic Ski Jump Team

Three Illinois residents have qualified for the U.S. Men’s Olympic Ski Jump Team -- out of four possible spots. Three jumpers from the Norge Ski Club in Fox River Grove will be competing at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. One of them is Cary resident Michael Glasder, who started skiing at the club when he was five years old. At age 28, this will be Glasder’s first Olympics -- he says he got close in 2010 and 2014 but missed the team by just a few points.
