Clukey Set to Return to Maine
In her final opportunity to qualify for the 2014 Olympics, Julia Clukey of the U.S. Luge team was just fractions of a second shy of heading to Sochi. Julia finished in 6th place in the final Olympic qualifying race of the season in Park City, Utah on December 13.
“Missing out on the chance to compete in the upcoming Olympics is very disappointing. As I’ve told the thousands of high school students and young people over the past few years, there are times in your life when you are going to face adversity and it’s up to you how to respond to it. I certainly plan to learn from this experience and become an even stronger person,” said Clukey
