Jessie Diggins

U.S. Olympian, Cross-Country Skiing

An Olympic gold medalist cross-country skier (and fellow Minnesotan), Jessie Diggins helped the U.S. women’s cross-country skiing team secure a first-ever gold medal at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.

Jessie is perhaps best known for her dramatic finish at PyeongChang 2018, lunging across the finish line to take gold for the U.S. She recently took first overall in the 2021 Tour de Ski, a Stage World Cup event in the FIS Cross-Country World Cup.

“What I love about skiing,” Jessie explains, “is the chance to push my body to the limit, to be training outside on beautiful trails with great people, and having the chance to find something new about myself with every race!”

Team Shuster

U.S. Olympians, Curling

In 2022, John Shuster will represent Team USA for his fifth consecutive Olympic Winter Games. With Team Shuster, he’ll be defending the gold medal won four years ago in PyeongChang. 

After failing to make the U.S. curling team following a disappointing performance at Sochi  2014, John refused to accept defeat and put together a team that would go on to win national and world championships, culminating in victory at the Olympic Winter Games in 2018 when they became the first Americans to win gold in men's curling.

“When your back’s against the wall, that’s where your character really shows and the character of everybody on our team,” Shuster says. “We’re all fighters. I think we've proven that plenty of times.”

Matt Stutzman

U.S. Paralympian, Archery

Known as “The Armless Archer,” Stutzman, who was born without arms, taught himself to use a bow and arrow on the family farm where he grew up.

His interest in archery soon expanded into competing at events across the U.S. He jumped into the international spotlight by winning the silver medal for archery at the Paralympic Games London 2012 before going on to compete at the Paralympic Games Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020.

“Throughout my life I have been very lucky,” Matt says. “I don’t see myself as someone who has no arms. I see myself as somebody who is completely normal like everyone else. Because of that, I was able to push myself and achieve my Paralympic dream in 2012.”
