Downhill racer Erik Fisher, a 2003 Eagle High graduate, was named to his second Olympic team Sunday, bringing the number of Idahoans at the Games to seven.
Fisher made the 2010 Olympic team but didnt get to race in Vancouver. The U.S. invited five downhill skiers for four spots and Fisher was the odd man out.
He is currently 47th in the World Cup Super-G standings and No. 90 in the overall standings.
As for the rest of the U.S. Ski Team, there were really no surprises when the squad for the Sochi Olympics was announced: Mikaela Shiffrin was on the list and, of course, Lindsey Vonn was not.
Five-time Olympic medalist Bode Miller made his fifth squad, while 2006 Olympic gold medalists Ted Ligety and Julia Mancuso also earned spots. In all, the Americans had nine women and 11 men on the team.
Other Idahoans already in:
Kaitlyn Farrington (Bellevue), womens snowboard halfpipe
Jessika Jenson (Rigby), womens snowboard slopestyle
Sara Studebaker (Boise High), biathlon
Nick Cunningham (Boise State track and field), bobsled
Hilary Knight (Sun Valley), womens hockey
