Jonny Moseley

Jonathan William Moseley, better known as Jonny Moseley (born August 27, 1975), is the first Puerto Rican to become a member of the U.S. Ski Team. Moseley was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. In 1978, he saw snow for the first time when his family went on a trip to California. Eventually, his family moved to Tiburon, California, a suburb north of San Francisco where he attended The Branson School in Ross, California. His family would go to the Sierra Nevada every weekend. This, and the fact that he was a better skier than his brothers, inspired the then nine-year-old Moseley to take skiing lessons. In 1992, he joined the Squaw Valley Freestyle Ski Team and soon won his first Junior National title in Freestyle Skiing; he graduated from high school in 1993 and that same year was selected for the U.S. Ski Team. Moseley tried but did not qualify for the 1994 Winter Olympics held at Lillehammer, Norway and became determined to qualify for the 1998 Olympics. In 1995, he enrolled at UC-Davis, but his education was interrupted by his intense training. In 1998, Moseley participated and won the first two World Cup events of the year; this led to his participation in the 1998 Winter Olympics
