Paul Smith’s College announces the formation of the college’s Advisory Committee for Olympic Sports, a select group of men and women with world-class athletic resumes whose experiences as Olympians will help guide the college’s Olympic sports initiative.

Joining the committee are:

  • Tim Burke, a Paul Smiths native and four-time Olympic biathlete.
  • Billy Demong from Vermontville, a Nordic combined gold and silver medalist.
  • Andrea Kilbourne-Hill of Saranac Lake, a 2002 women’s hockey silver medalist and current director of hockey for PSC.
  • Chris Mazdzer, also of Saranac Lake, a silver medal-winning luger who took the podium earlier this year in Pyeongchang.
  • Andrew Weibrecht of Lake Placid, a two-time Olympic medalist in alpine skiing.

The five athletes represent a combined record of 17 Winter Olympic Games appearances and six medal wins.
