In a Cross-Country Comeback, Skier With Type 1 Diabetes Named to U.S. Olympic Team

Kris Freeman hopes for first U.S. cross-country medal since 1976; health issues plagued 2006 Olympic bid

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Kris Freeman is back in the hunt for an Olympic medal in Vancouver after being named today to the U.S. ski team following a disappointing finish at the 2006 Games in Torino, Italy.  Freeman, who is expected to compete in up to five events at the 2010 Games in February, suffers from type 1 diabetes, a form of the disease where the body does not produce insulin needed to regulate blood sugar.  Freeman is sponsored by Eli Lilly and Company (Lilly), which makes the insulin that he depends on as a life-saving treatment.

Freeman is expected to compete for a medal in as many as five Olympic events spanning the breadth of the Vancouver Games, including the 15 km freestyle, the individual sprint, the 30 km pursuit, the team sprint, and the 50 km mass start classic.  Bill Koch won a silver medal in cross-country skiing in the 1976 Innsbruck Games in Austria, the only American to have medaled in the sport.

A key marker on Freeman's comeback trail is how he is now treated for type 1 diabetes.  To compete in the 2010 Games, Freeman will wear a small device, called an insulin pump, which provides an adjustable supply of insulin to help manage his diabetes even while racing.
