The last few weeks have been busy for Vic Wild. Winning two gold medals in the span of four days during the winter Olympics in Russia in the men’s Parallel Giant Slalom and Parallel Slalom, closing ceremonies, and the wave of media attention directed at the first American-born athlete to compete for Russia has led Wild to refer to it all as “the busiest time of my life.”
