Jessie Diggins is the runner in one of our Pivot Interactives series of videos. She is a cross-country skier and competed in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, in PyeongChang, South Korea. She and her teammate, Kikkan Randall, made history when they won gold medals in the team sprint freestyle race and became the first American women to win Olympic medals in cross-country skiing.
Jessie also participated in five other Olympic events and finished in the top seven in each of them. She was even selected to carry the US flag during the Winter Olympics closing ceremony. Congratulations, Jessie!
