Kris Freeman is probably best known as a distance stalwart. He competed in the Winter Olympics for the first time in 2002. In March 2003, at the World Championships held in Val di Fiemme, Italy, Freeman placed fourth in the 15 Kilometer Classic, only to miss out on the gold medal by 10 seconds. At the U-23 World Championships he placed 1st in the 30 km classic race, skiing away from the field. He was again picked for the U.S. Olympic Team. After several seasons in which, by his own admission, his results did not live up to expectations and the diagnosis of severe compartment syndrome, Freeman duplicated his career best by placing fourth in the 15 km individual-start classic race at the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2009 in Liberec, Czech Republic. [2]. Freeman represented the United States at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Since spring 2008, he has worn an innovative tubeless insulin pump called the OmniPod that adheres to his skin and delivers insulin so he does not have to inject it.
