Jake Adicoff Wins World Championship Silver
Wednesday, January 25, 2023


Sun Valley’s Jake Adicoff won a silver medal in Nordic World Championships in Ostersund, Sweden on Sunday.

Adicoff and his guide Sam Wood won the medal in the Men’s 18-kilometer Individual Start Classic at the 2023 FIS Para Nordic World Championships.

The race was the first of four that will be held through Jan. 29. The others include a cross-country skate sprint, individual sprint, 10K individual start and cross country relays.

Adicoff skied great, had good energy, “and he’s hungry,” said Head Coach Chris Mallory, the Gold Team Head Coach for thee Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation Cross Country team.

“It was a good start to the week and I’m psyched to build off it for the rest of the competitions here,” Adicoff added.

Adicoff became legally blind after incurring chicken pox in utero. He is a three-time Paralympian and four-time Paralympic medalist with one gold and three silvers to his name. He competed in the Paralympics Winter Games in Beijing, China; PyeongChang, South Korea, and Sochi, Russia.

He was introduced to the sport in 2002 through the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s Junior Nordic Development team. And he loves to spin a handsome piece of pottery at Boulder Mountain Clayworks when he’s not training on local trails.

The cross country and biathlon events are being livestreamed via the FIS Cross-Country YouTube channel.
