Ganong Hosts Fireside Chat: North American Edition
Ever wonder if athletes on the FIS Ski World Cup circuit hang out or stay connected in the offseason? Wonder no more. Olympian Travis Ganong recently lifted the curtain for a Fireside Chat: North American Edition, hosting an Instagram Live that featured he and his Alpine Canada girlfriend Marie "Mitch" Michele-Gagnon (yes, their last names really ARE that close) and competitor/teammate Manny Osborne-Paradis spoke about everything from returning from injury to Manny's famous helmet collection, and beyond.
For nearly an hour, Travis, Mitch, and Manny allowed fans to see what life is like for them on the World Cup tour in this inaugural cross-national Fireside Chat installation, sharing stories from their careers and giving everyone a sneak-peak into life on the White Circus—which is essentially one big international family.
So sit back, relax, grab a Pacifico...and enjoy!
ICYMI: Olympian @travisganong and his workout buddy/girlfriend @mmgagnon (who skis for @alpinecanada) recently jumped on an IG Live with @manny_ski to talk about everything from returning from injury to when they think they might be able to return to snow and kick off training for the 2020-21 season, and more (like Manny's famous helmet collection!). Check it out, and let us know if you want to see more of these cross-national chats in the future! 🇺🇸♥️🇨🇦
