Olympian Tommy Ford is one of the fastest movers in ski racing. The U.S. Ski Team took notice after he locked four gold medals at the 2006 U.S. Junior Championships. That proved to be a good look, because Ford went on to score World Cup points in his rookie season and then grab a spot on the 2010 Olympic team for giant slalom.
Ford sat out the entire 2014 Olympic season while still recovering from a major freeskiing crash he suffered in France at the end of the 2013 winter. That didn’t stop him from fully applying himself in both injury recovery and education. Ford went back to school and put down two solid semesters at Dartmouth. The year off also gave his teammates a chance to win a few more U.S. Championship titles; something Ford has quickly become a legend for earning. What an impressive comeback for Ford in 2015. After earning himself a top 20 result at World Championships, Ford went on to grab two more top 30 results—one each at Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Kranjska Gora—along with a 2nd place finish in the GS at U.S. Alpine Championships in Sugarloaf, Maine. Looks like someone is back and better than ever...2016 can't come soon enough!
