Feed athlete Will Brandenburg is a US Ski Team member and professional alpine skier, hailing from Washington and specializing in slalom. He began skiing before he was even one year old, and was racing by age seven. Although he comes from a family of competitive swimmers, he’d rather be outside. After breaking out as a junior in 2007, he battled several injuries but eventually landed a coaches’ discretion spot for the 2010 Olympic super combined. He didn’t disappoint, turning a 19th in the opening downhill into the second fastest run of slalom behind teammate Ted Ligety and ahead of gold medal winner Bode Miller to finish the race in 10th.

The FIS Alpine World Championships are taking place in Beaver Creek this week. Will is racing in the Men's Slalom on Sunday, which you can watch on Universal Sports, and NBC.
