This week, we had the pleasure of talking with Thor Vikstrom, 85 years young, who will compete in the cross crountry skiing competition. He is the President of Scanvest Canada and was born in Boden, Sweden. Thor then immigrated to the United States in 1956 and eventually settled in Laval, Québec, in 1976. He and Gerd, his wife of 62 years, have three children and six grandchildren. At 85, he is an avid skier and cyclist.
Here’s what he had to say.
