Merissa Osmar, 16, is a 3rd generation musher
and followed in her dads footsteps when she
won the Jr. Iditarod in 2010. He is the daughter of
Tim Osmar, three time Jr. Iditarod winner and grand
daughter of Dean Osmar, 1984 Iditarod champion.
Merissa started mushing when she was three,
because I loved being with my dogs, she
says. She continues, I won the 2010 Jr.
Iditarod and I enjoy everything mushing has to
offer. Merissa is in the 11th grade at
Skyview High School and participates in track and
soccer at school. She also enjoys sports, skiing
and snowboarding. Merissa says she wants to go to
college and become a veterinarian. And she says she
will continue mushing.
