BIOGRAPHY

Ted Ligety

BIOGRAPHY | GALLERY | GOSSIP

Ted Ligety, born August 31, 1984, in Salt Lake City, Utah, is an American alpine ski racer with the U.S. Ski Team. He is the reigning World Cup champion in the giant slalom as of 2009.

Ligety was on skis at two and began racing at 11. Skiing is truly a passion for Ligety, who said he skis “for the feeling I get when I’m linking arcs or getting face shots. There is always a variation in every turn and run. I could ski everyday for the rest of my life and never get bored.”

Ligety grew up in Park City, Utah, where he caught the eye of U.S. Ski Team coaches. They watched him for a while before naming him to the U.S. Development Team. Given that opening for international racing, Ligety didn’t fumble his chance.

At the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Ligety won the gold medal in the men's combined event. At age 21, he became the first American man to win an Olympic gold medal in alpine skiing. His Olympic victory in the combined came a month before his first World Cup victory, a win in the giant slalom in Yongpyeong, South Korea.

The Olympic champion won the season-long World Cup giant slalom title in 2008. Through the 2008 season, he had three World Cup victories (all in giant slalom), 12 podiums, and 41 top ten finishes.

During his spare time, Ligety loves to hang with friends and play all sports, especially enjoys biking and waterskiing.
