      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

      NATIONAL NORDIC FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES LIVE COVERAGE OF NORDIC JUNIOR & U23 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS EXCLUSIVELY ON NNF.SKI/TV

      January 24— Starting January 30, the world’s best nordic junior and U23 athletes will descend
      on the site of the 2002 Winter Olympics, offering a preview of the Olympic podiums in 2022
      and beyond. All twenty-four events of the 2017 FIS Nordic Junior and U23 World Ski
      Championships will be available live, worldwide—exclusively from the National Nordic
      Foundation (NNF). Access links to all events can be found at www.nnf.ski/tv.

      In producing live coverage of the World Junior/U23 Championships, the NNF is not only pleased
      to provide the global skiing community with access to high-level international competition,
      interviews, and skier education but also to raise funds for nordic athletes across the United
      States. Live access to each event will be available for $4.95 or all events for $49.95. By offering
      this pay-per-view model worldwide, the NNF aims to generate funding that will support future
      athletic programming.

      “This is a unique and exciting opportunity,” said Hennie Kashiwa, Executive Director of the NNF.
      “Not only are we able provide a service to the community and support the event’s organizing
      committee, but this is a chance to find new revenue that can go right back to our athletes. Tell
      your friends about it; this is going to be great.”

      Once the Championships have concluded, all competitions will be archived and available, along
      with edited interviews and educational segments, at www.nnf.ski/tv.
