Ligety and Moseley Instagram Live Featured in SKI Magazine
Back in April, Olympic champion and Land Rover ambassador Ted Ligety caught up with U.S. Ski Team alumnus Jonny Moseley, Olympic and World Cup champion in mogul skiing. SKI Magazine recently featured the conversation on its website.
In the hour-long conversation, the two skiing legends discuss everything from the International Ski Federation (FIS) to technique they have in common and ski tips for each other and the audience, and beyond. The video is well worth the watch. As SKI noted in the article:
This interview is an incredible conversation between two ski legends packed with valuable details from their careers as professional skiers. Beginning at minute 8:30, Jonny explains the inspiration and development of his signature move, the "Dinner Roll." Moseley goes to explain how and why he had to go head to head with FIS to persuade them to allow inverted tricks in mogul skiing.
If ski measurements and regulations are your thing, the controversies surrounding FIS regulations in alpine racing is explained by Ted beginning at 16:30. Ligety discusses the issue of ski radius in the GS discipline and discusses the lack of communication between the FIS organization and athletes at minute 19:00.
