Ted Shred, the GS Ace, Lightening Ligety – call him whatever you want because this Olympic speed demon isn’t slowing down anytime soon. As NASTAR’s official ambassador since 2011, Ted’s been adding medals around his neck since he took silver in slalom at the 2004 Junior Word Championships. Hailing from Park City, Utah and clipping into skis since the age of two, Ted learned to race at the NASTAR course at Park City Mountain Resort. Climbing his way up the podium, he became a member of the U.S. Ski Team at age 18 and earned a gold medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy. Not to mention, he has 15 World Cup wins and has stood atop the World Cup podium 35 times. This year, Ted made history in the World Championships becoming the first man in 45 years to win three gold medals and the first racer of either gender to win the super-G, giant slalom, and combined at one world championships If his record is any indicator of how he’ll perform in the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, he’s bound to make his home country proud. Off the hill, Ted is the president of Shred Optics, a goggle, sunglass, and helmet company that sponsors dozens of professional skiers and snowboarders, such as Alice McKennis, Keely Keller, and Marcus Caston.
