My Travel Story

Hi, my name is Mitch Hollman and I am a third class cadet at the United States Air Force Academy.

This winter I will be traveling to Almaty, Kazakhstan to cross country ski in the World University Games and represent Team USA. This competition is for university students and is second only to the Olympic Games.

Embracing FISU’s motto of 'Excellence in Mind and Body', the Winter Universiade incorporates educational and cultural aspects into 11 days of sports competitions, allowing university student-athletes worldwide to celebrate with the host city in a true spirit of friendship and sportsmanship.

These ski races would be an amazing opportunity for me to promote USA cross country skiing at an international level as well as represent the United States.

Thanks you for considering to support my trip!
