Every 2018 Winter Olympian with Michigan Connections

There are 2,920 athletes from 92 countries participating in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Of those, 242 athletes are representing the United States of America across fifteen sports. Thirteen of those athletes were either born in Michigan or went to university in Michigan. And of those, only one was born, raised, and lives in the Upper Peninsula of America.

We put a list together of every 2018 Olympian with a Michigan connection, many whom were born in Michigan.

The list begins with local favorite, Nick Baumgartner. Nick was born and raised in Iron River, a southwestern town of the Upper Peninsula. Not only is he representing the United States and Yoopers, but this is the third time he’s done so, having also competed in the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics as part of the USA Snowboard Team competing in snowboardcross.
