HE LEARNED THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN HIS LIFE FROM HIS BIG SISTERS: A LOVE OF SKIING

At this winter's World Championships, America's ski fans will be pinning their hopes on him when it comes to speed. Because Travis Ganong has tenaciously worked his way up to the top and there is no doubt that he is set to be the next big US name on the wall of fame in Downhill and Super G.
