ERIK SCHLOPY, 3x Olympic Alpine Skier: Never Give Up The BRINK OF MIDNIGHT PODCAST with John Brenkus

    • Society & Culture

Erik Schlopy, 3x Olympic Skier and former World Cup ski racer joins The Brink of Midnight Podcast.    Erik Schlopy is a walking miracle and may even be part super hero. "Schlopes" is a three-time Olympic alpine skier for Team USA, World Champion, 7-time National Champion, and last year, was inducted into the USA Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame. Considered an innovator for Team USA skiing, he helped establish Team USA's European training base in Austria with teammate Bode Miller and has been credited for advancing the "double stack" structure for ski bindings that allows ski racers to travel at greater speeds. He’s also married to one of our previous podcast guests, Olympic swimmer, Summer Sanders.    Erik is indestructible. He has not one, but several remarkable comeback stories. He made his second Olympic team cobbling together race wins and points after being ranked dead last in the world. He’s experienced crashes that will send chills down your spine, and has come back strong from an unthinkable list of injuries. He’s even survived a deadly avalanche in the famed Alaskan Chugach mountains...and that's only a few stories among many.   Erik's collection of accomplishments and comebacks will blow you away, but what is perhaps most striking are his abilities to never give up and to let instinct take over when it’s needed most.  In this conversation, we go on an unreal adventure exploring Erik's journey and hone in on what it takes to both survive and perform when the deck is stacked against you.  Sit back, listen, and enjoy the wild ride of Erik's life and hard-earned lessons. You just might leave this conversation feeling a little more like a super hero!   For full show notes, visit: www.brinkofmidnight.com | Contact: info@brinkofmidnight.com | Connect: @brinkofmidnight (twitter, instagram, Facebook)
