Walker Robinson Secures Silver At Youth Olympic Games

In Gangwon, South Korea, Team USA athletes Morgan Shute and Walker Robinson secured the silver medal at the Youth Olympic Games in the Team Event for Ski Cross. Following their strong individual performances the day before, both Shute and Robinson demonstrated exceptional resilience to clinch the silver, finishing ahead of Switzerland and just behind the Swedish ski cross team. A pivotal moment came when Robinson, despite a challenging crash in his semifinal heat, displayed remarkable determination to get back up and contribute to the team's success. Reflecting on the experience, Robinson shared, “I knew I could not let the team down…I needed to push through because we had a medal to win.” This marks Shute's second silver medal at the Youth Olympic Games, adding to her previous achievement in the women's ski cross event.
