Fast & Loose – Episode 3 with Gus Schumacher
Fast & Loose Ep. 3: Gus Schumacher
Episode 3 of our new IG Live Series, “Fast & Loose” is hot off the presses. Or maybe it’s hot off the Gram? Either way, host Adam Jaber, from The Out of Bounds Podcast is back to give you another behind the scenes look at the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team and their athletes.
This week’s guest is Gus Schumacher, of the U.S. Men’s Cross Country Team. The interview was live on our Instagram at 12pm EST on Monday 1/18. But hey, it was a holiday. So if you missed it, not to worry, The Snow Report has you covered!
Get to know Gus
The 20-year-old native of Anchorage, Alaska is in his third year on the U.S. Ski Team competing in Men’s Cross Country. In 2020, Gus became the first American Male to take home a gold at the FIS Junior World Cross Country Championships. And he has followed that up this year, placing 18th in the grueling FIS Tour de Ski – the best-ever American men’s result!
Adam and Gus cut it up on lots of topics; the family business of Nordic sponsorships, ski resumes, Alaskan stereotypes, and making cross-country look cool on social media. Gus has gold medal dreams and mullet-cutting schemes. What does that even mean? We’ll let Gus and Adam take it from here!
More to come!
Thanks to our guest Gus Schumacher and host Adam Jaber for taking us through the up, downs and flats of the U.S. nordic team. Stay tuned and keep an eye out for more episodes of Fast & Loose on IG Live, to see more from the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team and to continue watching Adam Jaber’s hair race past his shoulders.
