BostonGlobe.com: Plumber from Saugus plugs away at his Olympic dream
Jonathan Cheever, a plumber from Saugus, is poised to make the US Olympic team and compete in snowboard cross at the upcoming Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. This is no pipe dream.
“I think he’s got an amazing chance,” said US Snowboarding head coach Peter Foley, acknowledging Cheever’s third-place finish in a World Cup and US Olympic qualifier in Argentina in September.
“We don’t have a lot of selection events left. He’s not a shoo-in, but right now he’s got the best chance of anyone.”
