Mossy Oak ProStaff member Todd Lodwick earned a spot in his sixth Winter Olympics this year and has been named the flag bearer for the U.S. Olympic team in Sochi, Russia.
“What an honor for one of our own ProStaff members to be the flag bearer for the U.S. Olympic team,” said Tim Anderson, Director of Public Relations and ProStaff for Mossy Oak. “Todd is an avid hunter and we’re proud of his hard work and passion as an outdoorsman. We wish him the best at his sixth Winter Olympics.”
Lodwick was chosen by a vote of team captains in each sport. Lodwick competes in Nordic combined skiing, which includes the ski jump and cross country skiing. At age 37, he will become the first American athlete to participate in six Winter Games. Lodwick was part of the U.S. team that won silver in Vancouver four years ago. His first Olympic appearance was in 1994 at the age of 17.
The opening ceremony will air on NBC at around 7:30 EST tomorrow, February 7. MossyOak.com features a 5-day article series on Mossy Oak ProStaffer Todd Lodwick. Day 1 of the series can be read here.
