And then there were six! Idaho's Olympic contingent has grown to six with the addition of Alpine skier Breezy Johnson of Victor, Idaho to the USA women's team.
Johnson is the fifth skier in a four skier rotation for the Olympic Downhill on February 20th. Johnson is currently 23rd in the World Cup standings after finishing 18th last year.
Johnson learned to ski on the slopes of Jackson Hole, a place she calls a crazy mountain meaning she had to be fearless in attacking the hill.
Johnson will join five other Idaho Olympians in South Korea: Hilary Knight of Hailey in hockey, Chase Josey of Hailey in the snowboard halfpipe, Jessika Jenson of Rigby in snowboard slopestyle and big air, and former BSU and Idaho track stars Nick Cunningham and Sam Michener of the USA four man bobsled team.
