Few athletes have had such dramatic impact on their sport in such a short span on time as World Champion Jeremy Bloom. One of the most highly competitive athletes in the history of the U.S. Ski Team, the two-time Olympian dominated freestyle moguls skiing in the mid-’00 winning World Cup titles, a World Championship crown and a record win streak that remained unbeaten for seven years.
A Colorado native, Bloom grew up skiing the bumps at Keystone where his mother worked as an instructor. An alpine racer until the age of 10, Breckenridge freestyle coach Scott Rawles and John Dowling introduced him to moguls. He would go on to medal at the Junior Worlds while, at the same time, achieving All-State honors for his state championship football team while attending Loveland High School.
In 2003, he won a gold and silver in the two moguls events at the World Championships at Deer Valley. The 2005 season was one for the ages for Bloom. His string of six straight wins remained unbroken until 2012. And it led him to both the moguls and overall FIS Freestyle World Cup. He went on to a short career in the National Football League before retiring from both football and skiing in 2009.
