Skier Ted Ligety became the first American to win gold at men's giant slalom yesterday but more importantly, five years ago he jumped his car like he was putting Ken Block to shame.
Ted Ligety is all about technique. He's precise. Controlled. Clean. He's also a complete risk-taker. Each of those so-called precise, controlled, clean turns? They're perpetually a razor's-edge (or a millisecond) from disaster.
