Florence Woman to Compete in Olympics

These snowy Wisconsin winters have helped prepare one Florence County woman to make her Olympic debut. 25-year-old Nita Englund of Florence has been selected for the U-S Olympic Ski Jumping Team for the 2018 Winter Games to be held in South Korea. She’s competed three times with the junior world championship team. A 2012 injury kept her out of the sport for a year, but she moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado soon after to advance her training. Englund has been ski jumping for more than fifteen years.
