Washington State's Colby Granstrom made a statement at the 2003 Whistler Cup races. At the year’s biggest event for J3 (13-14 years) and J4 (11-12) racers, he won both the slalom and giant slalom–at only 12 years old. A solid, all-around racer, Granstrom is a Junior World Champion, a U.S. Champion and quickly climbing the World Cup slalom rungs.
Although he didn’t hit his 2014 goal of going to Sochi, Granstrom made the best of his time on U.S. soil and wracked up the NorAm slalom title, which solidifies his slalom start for the 2015 World Cup season. It also helped when he popped some points in Schladming just prior to the Olympics. Oh, and he got married to longtime girlfriend and fellow racer Brooke Wales during the pre-2015 summer. Congrats Colby.
