Of course, he won’t be able to ski professionally forever. But he does feel compelled to remain involved in the sport.
He plans to work with Nordic skiing clubs and continue promoting Nordic combined.
“I feel like it’s a sport that I love, and it’s a lifestyle sport,” Demong said. “It’s like golf; you can do it forever — well, maybe not so much ski jumping.
“But I’ll continue to race, continue to try to facilitate clubs and get more kids involved. It’s a sport that I’ll be tied to closely for the rest of my life.”
