He's back this year, with a lot less hair. If you ask me, that's the tough part.
While it's a triumph of wills that Lund could return to the Olympics, every story about him now focuses on the fact that he's bald. Lund has said that he started losing his hair in high school, when kids are at their meanest. Now, 15 years later, he has to deal with question after question about how his baldness cost him the Olympics. That has to be grating.
Lund is taking it all in stride, though, telling the Deseret News: "Now that I'm here, I'm on top of the world. It hasn't been easy, and I had to work hard to make it back. But I realize I'm so lucky to be here and to be competitive." Good on him.
Plus he looks way tougher with no hair. Win-win.
