Nick Goepper's Silver Lining

Gus Kenworthy Is Out And Proud And On TV

In 2014, Kenworthy was on the slopestyle podium with Goepper as the silver medalist. But it wasn't until the fall of 2015 that Kenworthy felt he was able to compete as his true self, when he came out publicly as gay. In 2018, Kenworthy missed the podium, but being an openly gay athlete was a prize all its own.



Jon Lillis' Olympic journey was a bittersweet moment for the Lillis family. After losing his youngest brother Mikey in October, Jon didn't know if he would be able to compete at his best with Olympic qualifications quickly approaching. Then when his middle brother, Chris, tore his ACL in his quest to make the team, the pressure was on for Jon to make his family proud and honor his brother's legacy. Jon finished eighth in the aerials final, a moment to celebrate for a family who has been through so much.
