2018 Conference Keynote: Dr. Kristin Armstrong

Kristin Armstrong is the most decorated U.S. women's cyclist of all time and the best time-trialist in sports history. She is a three-time Olympic Gold Medalist, two-time World Champion and has won six U.S. National Championships.

Kristin is the only female U.S. athlete to win the same event (time trial) in three consecutive Olympic Summer Games, taking home the gold medal in Beijing (2008), London (2012) and Rio (2016). Additionally, Kristin became the oldest female cyclist in history to win an Olympic medal when she won gold in Rio, one day before her 43rd birthday.

Kristin graduated from the University of Idaho with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology. She spends her free time on public speaking engagements and serves as the Manager of Community Health for St. Luke’s in Boise, Idaho. Kristin is married to Joe Savola and they have a six-year-old son named Lucas. Kristin and her family continue to reside in Boise, Idaho.

Pre-Conference Tour – Daytrip to Idaho City: “Where the Streets are Paved in Gold”

The day begins at the Idaho Water Center for a tour of two University of Idaho programs located in the heart of Boise: The Center for Ecohydraulics Research, featuring a tour of a large-scale sediment flume for river and stream research; and the University of Idaho Confucius Institute featuring a presentation on the influence of Chinese settlers in the Boise Basin.

Next, we will adventure north to Idaho City, gateway to the Sawtooth Mountains and a true hidden gem. Once the largest city in the Pacific Northwest during the gold rush, there now remains a rugged western town steeped in mining and logging history. See historic structures, walk on traditional wooden sidewalks, shop the antique stores, explore artifacts in the Boise Basin Museum and wind your way through Pioneer Cemetery.
