Football and Skiing?
By Jody Williams
  

1     Can you play football and be an Olympic skier? Jeremy Bloom did both. Jeremy was born in Colorado. He spent a lot of time skiing in the Rocky Mountains. His dad taught people to ski. His whole family loved to ski. They often took family ski trips to the mountains.
 
2     Jeremy loved to ski. He loved football too. He used to watch the Denver Broncos when he was little. He wanted to be a football player more than anything. Jeremy went to college in Colorado. He played football. He also kept skiing. In fact, he went to the 2002 Olympics. They were in Salt Lake City, Utah. He placed ninth in his event. For a while, Jeremy tried to do it all. He played college football. He skied. In 2005, he won six World Cup races in a row. That's the most anyone has won in a row. He was ranked as the number one skier in the world!
