Nebraska native Jordan Larson embracing opportunity to play in fourth Olympics

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – The countdown to the 2024 Paris Olympics rolls on as we are 99 days away from the opening ceremonies.

Team USA members from all around the country, including Nebraska native Jordan Larson, uniting to represent our nation on the world’s biggest stage.

“Representing something bigger than you at that moment and that’s all the sacrifices that people make to even allow us to play the sport that we love.” Larson said.

Larson is set to compete in her fourth Olympics, but the feeling of wearing the United States on her uniform never gets old. With each year bringing new challenges, it’s part of what fuels her to keep going.

“I think there’s always a problem to solve. There’s always a new piece, there’s always a new personality coming in. There’s a new skill that we’re trying to learn. The game is evolving and then how do you make it work? How do you figure out how to win? Larson said. Because there’s a lot of ways to win and not every win looks the same. So how do you figure that out? Trying to figure that out is the best part.”

Larson is one of the more experienced players on the national team. She’s been a member since 2009 and became team captain in 2017. At 37 years old, she knows her Olympic playing career may be trending toward its end, giving her a different perspective while making the most of her time remaining in Team USA threads.

“Up to this point, I’ve lived with no regrets and I still believe that and I’m just trying to wring out what I have left and I know I’ve done everything I could within my power.”
