Biography

Retrieved from MTV.com

Professional skier, Gus Kenworthy is a viral internet sensation turned Olympic Medalist. At the age of 16, Kenworthy compiled footage of his skiing into a one-minute video submission for a prestigious free-skiing event. The clip took the internet by storm, and industry professionals began to notice. Kenworthy picked up his first sponsor, and his professional career began to take off. Now a legend in the sport, Kenworthy has multiple claims to fame, including the first ever double cork 1080 in a half pipe, the first ever double flip on a hip jump and the first double flip off a rail. At the age of 23, he earned the privilege of representing the USA in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia and brought home a silver medal in slopestyle. In 2015, Kenworthy made the bold and courageous decision to come out as a proud gay man. Never one to shy away from the camera or his fans, he chose to deliver this news on the cover of ESPN magazine. With multiple Winter X Games medals and countless other championships, he continues to challenge his opponents on the competition circuit. Kenworthy is teaming up with The Challenge to benefit both The Trevor Project and the Happy Hippie Foundation.
