Early on in the 2012 season, McKinnon followed up her national’s debut success by landing a victory in just her second NorAm competition ever. Four wins later, McKinnon wrapped up the overall NorAm title in her first year on the tour. A silver medal at the 2012 U.S. National Championships and a bronze medal at the FIS Junior World Championships capped her stellar season.
“My path to the U.S Ski Team has been extremely exciting. I never thought that something like this would happen to me especially in such a short time,” says McKinnon. “I have really worked hard to get to this point, but my parents and coaches have definitely helped me and supported me a lot throughout the way. I really can’t thank them enough!”
Of course making the U.S Ski Team was an amazing way to top of my season and I couldn’t be happier. The most fun part of the season was definitely traveling to Italy with my team and competing at such an amazing place. I had never been to Europe before so it was a really great experience.
I’m really looking forward to competing in more World Cups. I hope to compete well and to train hard so that I can have a successful season. Being a pre-Olympic year, my goals are still the same. I want to continue working hard and staying focused and with that I will see what comes in the future.
