ROAD TO SOCHI
Since making his first Olympic appearance in 2010, Fisher has endured multiple injuries. After aggravating his knee during the Olympic test event in Sochi, Russia, he was sidelined for nearly a year after a crash in Kvitfjell, Norway, resulting in mandatory ACL surgery. He opted to stay off the world cup circuit for the majority of the 2013 season, allowing his knee to fully recover. With consistent results on the 2013-14 World Cup tour, he earned his second Olympic berth to Sochi, where he is looking to compete in his first Olympic race.
