Type Olympic: Kris Freeman

 This is Kris Freeman.

Three-time cross-country "Top-Ranked Skier" of the Olympics. He possessed 16 national titles and was ranked #1 in his sport before being let go of the US Team in April of 2013.

As of February 9th, Kris will start his journey to obtain gold at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi!

Kris has lived with Type One Diabetes since he was 19. Though many thought this would end Kris's career in cross-country skiing, it didn't!

It seems that many times people write about Type One as a "death-sentence" to your dreams and ambitions.

On the contrary, Kris has proved a powerful fact to the entire world:

Though Type One is a part of him, it can't defeat his dreams!

 As I look forward to the upcoming Olympic performances, it will be inspiring to watch Kris fight for gold - and for all the Type One's watching!
