Andover native Nick Fairall will take part in the Winter Olympics in Sochi in February.
Fairall secured a spot on the U.S. ski jumping team with his win at the Olympic Trials in Park City, Utah this past weekend.
Fairall, 24, has been skiing since he was six years old, cutting his teeth at the Andover Outing Club.
He says while competing in his first Olympics will be thrilling, he won’t be satisfied until he has the ultimate prize.
“Well, obviously, like everyone’s goal, is Olympic gold.”
