We are so proud to have three local Telluride athletes competing at the PeyongChang Olympic Winter 2018 games in three disciplines.
Freeskier Gus Kenworthey returns after his silver medal win in 2014. Keaton McCargo worked hard for her place on the Women’s Moguls team
a very competitive set. Kearney also faced a very tough field of snowboarders to earn a coveted snowboard cross spot.
All three were members of the Telluride Ski & Snowboard Club in their youth.
They share their life stories & passion…
– GUS KENWORTHY –
See how he found his fire to qualify for his 2nd Olympics:
After a rough few days in Snowmass, Telluride freeskier Gus Kenworthy came into Sunday’s U.S.-team selection slopestyle event with a little tighter focus knowing the Team USA qualifying was coming down to the wire. Kenworthy, who won slopestyle silver at the Sochi Games, did not advance to the finals of Thursday’s Toyota Grand Prix slope event.
