Olympic Briefing: Moguls

Paying Attention: If you spend much time on a ski mountain,  you either learn to love moguls or to avoid them. The mogul skiers who make it to the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics have learned to love them. Mogul skiing is technique, strength, and timing heavy. Mogul skiers blast through the bumps by using their lower body to absorb the shock and keeping their upper body very quiet. No doubt the “official sport” of mogul skiing grew out of a bunch of super-hot local skiers just showing off for their friends when cruising through the bumps; who knew, then, that one day it would be an Olympic sport.  Catch some background on the sport with this wiki and this video . The opening video for this Olympic Briefing is of one of the greatest mogul skiers who ever lived,  Jonny Moseley,  at the Men’s Mogul Finals in the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. Get pumped. Jonny can roll.
