University of New Mexico’s Nordic skier Linn Klaesson was named the Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association Skier of the Week for her performances at the RMISA Championships/NCAA West Regional on Feb. 23-25 in Bozeman, Mont.

Klaesson, a junior from Oslo, Norway, put the exclamation point on her fantastic 2012 season with a great performance at the RMISA Championships over the weekend in Bozeman, Mont.

Klaesson netted herself two top-five finishes at the RMISA Championships, claiming fourth in the 15K Classic and fourth in the 5K Freestyle. The pair of fourth-place finishes gives Klaesson 10 top-10 finishes on the season. Making that stat even more eye popping is the fact that their has been just 10 races run this year, meaning Klaesson has placed in the top 10 in every single race she has participated in this season.

“Linn finished her amazing season with all 10 competitions in the top 10,” Head coach Fredrik Landstedt reiterated about his great junior.
