Olympic cross country skier with diabetes....way to go!

Kris Freeman Update: Breaking D-Ground in Olympic Endurance Sports

I’m back today for my second exclusive check-in with Kris Freeman, world-class cross-country skier competing in the Winter Olympics this week. He’s the only athlete there with diabetes. And on Saturday, it caught up with him. A blood sugar crash killed his chances for taking a medal in the men’s 30K event, where he was a favorite (he fell to 45th place after having to lie down in the snow mid-race for a bit). Naturally, he’s disappointed, but still pushing his limits.


Live good,
