ROAD TO SOCHI
Randall shined during the 2012-13 World Cup season, finishing first in the final sprint standings and third in the overall standings – the highest ranking for a U.S. female cross-country skier in history. She capped her historic season by teaming with Jesse Diggins to capture the first-ever U.S. team sprint gold medal at the 2013 World Championships. She carried her momentum into the 2013-14 World Cup season, earning three podium finishes. After clinching her fourth Olympic berth, the 13-time national champion is looking to become the first U.S. cross-country female skier to medal at an Olympic Winter Games.
