Snippets From the Press Conference

Soon after Aliy crossed the line in Nome she and Mitch Seavey were whisked away to a press conference to tell a few tales and answer some questions. I have pulled out a few snippets from Aliy - even sleep deprived and exhausted she is still gracious, funny and smiling.



The Prizegiving and Banquet is being held tonight and I will bring you some snippets from that as soon as I can.

Thank you so much for this! A warmth obvious here - family plan for SP Kennel!!! So proud of the 2 legged and 4-legged mushing Red Team!

I could watch this over and over - and I will!

Wow, you can just see how tired she is! Compare this video to the Iditarod live video she did before the race! Thank you Aliy!

Wow, Aliy! Considering how whipped you look & no doubt were, you are amazingly coherent... & pretty funny, too! "Did I mention the rain?" :D You created a vivid image in my mind of the conditions on the Yukon. Congratulations to you & the Red Team ran an outstanding race!

For those of us who can't be in Nome, these snippets are priceless! I can't even begin to imagine how Aliy and Mitch put together coherent sentences after such sleep deprivation. Thank you so much for sharing this....now I look forward to Aliy's trail notes! And then to 2014 racing season! Awesome race Aliy!

Thanks for sharing. I have no concept of how they could even talk and yet the answered questions and sounded coherent. WOW

Thanks for sharing this - I saw a small part of it on ADN and was hoping to see more. It's great, but you have my sympathy for being dragged into while hungry, dirty and sleep deprived! Aliy is a terrific ambassador for the sport!

Everything everybody said already above, double that!!! Aliy looked great, sounded great and was particularly eloquent as she described those details she might not remember after the finishing interview (after a good night's SLEEP)!!!

And an extra thanks to the website for this video in particular!
