Travis Ganong launched his world cup career in 2010 and quickly established himself as one of Team USA's future elite downhill skiers. Making his Olympic debut in 2014, he finished fifth in downhill to lead the U.S. Alpine Ski Team, which included Olympic veteran Bode Miller. One week later and still seeking his first international podium finish, he placed third in super-G at the FIS World Cup stop in Kvitfjell, Norway, capping his best-ever world cup season to date. He continued to climb the ranks in 2015, claiming his first world cup win in Santa Caterina, Italy, and notching an impressive second-place finish at the world championships to finish the season ranked No. 11 in the downhill standings. The 2016 and 2017 seasons saw him combine for 11 top-10 finishes on the world cup circuit, including a downhill win in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. He will look to find the podium yet again as he seeks his second Olympic berth in PyeongChang.
