Freestyle Skiing Analyst

Jonny Moseley reprises his role as a freestyle skiing analyst for NBC Sports, having served in the same capacity during NBC Sports’ Olympic coverage in Vancouver (2010) and Sochi (2014).

In 1998, Moseley won the gold medal in men’s freestyle skiing moguls at the Nagano Winter Games.  That same year he won the World Cup moguls title, and was honored by the U.S Olympic Committee as the “Sportsman of the Year.” Moseley won a silver medal at the 1999 X Games in big air, making him the first skier to win medals at both an Olympics and X Games after he challenged the U.S. Ski team to allow him to compete in professional events.

At his second Olympics in Salt Lake in 2002, Moseley earned a fourth-place finish in the moguls competition, but gained notoriety for performing his signature move, the Dinner Roll, a 720-degree horizontal spin that did not have a high point value at the time, but was influential in pioneering the sport.
