Биография

Ted LIGETY

An Olympic Alpine combined champion at Turin 2006, Ted Ligety went on to become the world’s leading giant slalom skier, a status he confirmed by winning gold in the event at Sochi 2014. Five times a giant slalom world champion – with three of those wins coming consecutively between 2011 and 2015 – Ligety failed to get in among the medals at PyeongChang 2018, but has not given up hope of returning to an Olympic podium one day.

The kid from Park City

There was no better place for a budding young skier like Ligety to grow up than Park City Mountain Resort in the Wasatch Mountains, right in the heart of the Rockies of Utah, the state whose car registration plates bear the legend “Greatest Snow on Earth.” Blessed with a natural talent and an ultra-competitive streak, the young Ligety loved racing and quickly earned a place at the resort’s Winter Sports School, which strives for both educational and sporting excellence. Having graduated back in 2002, Ligety is now one of the school’s ambassadors.

A champion in Turin

Recognised for his skiing skills, particularly his spectacular gift for cutting turns, Ligety starred on the USA junior team. He then made his World Cup debut at the age of 19, in a giant slalom in November 2003 in his home resort in Salt Lake City, which just a few months earlier had hosted the Alpine events at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games.

It was not long before Ligety was competing in giant slalom, slalom and the Alpine combined, gradually working his way to the top of his sport. The first major success of his career came at Turin 2006 when he won Olympic gold in the combined. Trailing in 32nd place after the downhill, he turned in two breath-taking slalom runs to top the podium ahead of Croatia’s Ivica Kostelic and Austria’s Rainer Schönfelder.
