Casey Wright came from around the globe to attend UAA. Now she's heading back across it--this time for another experience of a lifetime. Twice an NCAA qualifier, she's added to her resume and in a huge way. 

On Friday, the 23-year-old junior nordic skier from Melbourne was named to the 2018 Australian Olympic team. She received the word by email. Hours after learning of the honor, she sat down with KTVA's Dave Goldman at the Alaska Airlines Center to discuss the honor.
