The parents of Leif Nordgren of Marine on St. Croix, who is competing in the Biathlon, will be staying home to watch their son.

Nordgren, 24, a graduate of Forest Lake High School, is in his fourth year competing on the International Biathlon Union World Cup circuit and helped the U.S. men's relay team to a 12th-place finish at the 2013 IBU World Championships last February in the Czech Republic.

Nordgren's parents talk to KSTP about what it's like to watch from home.
