Twelve named to U.S. nordic teams for 2003-04{mosimage}A dozen U.S. skiers will comprise the three nordic teams fielded by the U.S. Ski Team next season. The cross-country team will include six skiers — five men and one woman. U.S. nordic director Luke Bodensteiner said the group would train under head coach Trond Nystad and his staff in Park City, Utah, for the summer and early fall.

There will also be a five-man nordic combined team — with Bill Demong returning after missing last season with a fractured skull — and a one-man jumping team with teenager Clint Jones.
