Heading into his first truly healthy season in nearly three years, Ted Ligety hopes to reclaim his spot at the top of the Word Cup GS discipline.
Bursting onto the world stage with a miraculous gold medal in the combined at the Torino 2006 Winter Olympics, Ligety has since captured five World Cup giant slalom crystal globes, another Olympic gold at Sochi 2014, five World Championship golds, and 25 World Cup wins in the years since.
Now 34, married, and a father to his one-year-old son, Jax, “Mr. GS” has had to battle through his fair share of injuries over the last few seasons. A torn ACL followed by back surgery in consecutive years made the road back to the World Cup long and frustrating for the Park City, Utah native. Heading into his first truly healthy season in nearly three years and with a solid round on snow training foundation, Ligety is working to reclaim his spot at the top of the Word Cup.
Here's to an amazing season!
