Gianforte’s remarks as prepared:

Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize three Montana athletes who will join Team USA and compete in the 2018 Winter Olympics. Darian Stevens of Missoula, Maggie Voisin of Whitefish, and Brad Wilson of Butte will represent not only Montana but our great nation in South Korea.

This is the second Olympics where Maggie has qualified, and she will compete in women’s slopestyle skiing. Darian, who began skiing when she was four years old, will also compete in women’s slopestyle skiing. Brad, who also started skiing when he was four and who competed in the Sochi games four years ago, will compete in men’s moguls skiing.

I look forward to cheering on these outstanding Montanans. I ask that my colleagues join me in wishing Maggie, Darian, and Brad success in the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I yield back.
