Adicoff and Wood Bring Home Silver…With More Races This Week

On Sunday, Jake Adicoff, SVSEF XC Gold Team athlete and three-time Olympian, competed in the Men’s 18km Individual Start Classic, his first of four races at the 2023 FIS Para Nordic World Championships in Ostersund, Sweden. Adicoff brought home silver in the race, alongside his best friend and guide, Sam Wood.

“It was a good start to the week and I’m psyched to build off it for the rest of the competitions here,” said Adicoff. “It’s great to be in Ostersund, Sweden, the classic skiing was fantastic.” “Jake skied great today, really good energy, and he’s hungry,” said Chris Mallory, SVSEF XC Gold Team Head Coach. “It was great skiing, bomber tracks on a cold day. The Skate Sprint is on deck tomorrow and they’re ready to bring it.”

Adicoff and Wood have three races to come over the course of the championships, the next being Tuesday, Jan. 24 with the Individual Sprint. The complete schedule, video, and results for the Para Nordic World Championships can be found at this link:
