Alaskan Disciple of Jesus Named to the U.S. Olympic Team

Alaskan Disciple of Christ Reese Hanneman has earned one of the highly-coveted spots on the U.S. Olympic Cross Country Ski Team and will be headed to the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.

In the Olympic qualifiers, Reese placed 3rd in the Freestyle Sprint and 1st in the Classic Sprint. He went on to win the 2018 U.S. National Championship in both the Freestyle and Classic Sprint races. This totals FOUR U.S. National Championship titles for Reese! These championships did not guarantee a spot on the Olympic team, but after almost three weeks of uncertainly, the U.S. Olympic Ski Team announced its selections with Reese on the roster.

Join the Great Land Christian Church in congratulating and rooting for Reese
