A rough Olympics for Saranac Lake ski jumper Peter Frenette

Listen to this story
The US ski jumping team failed to advance last night in Sochi. It was the final event of these Olympics for Saranac Lake jumper Peter Frenette, who said he was frustrated by his performance.

"I came here expecting to compete well and didn't really do that but I made it here and had fun. I'm at the Olympics having a good time. It's a great accomplishment just to make it, so got to remember that."

Frenette said misjumps early in the Olympics threw off his timing and sapped his confidence.

"Once it gets in your head like that, it's kind of hard to shake it. It's hard to come back from starting out slow."

Frenette, who is just 21 years old, says he'll resume training and go back on the world cup tour.
