U.S. Skier Ted Ligety Discusses Second Gold Medal On "Late Show"
Published February 26, 2014
Host David Letterman asked Ligety to define some skiing terms for him and when the "super combined" was mentioned, Letterman said, “Of course with that one you get fries.” Ligety talked of the changes made to his skis during the Olympics: “They basically made our skis longer and straighter, more like the old school, like when you learned how to ski.” Ligety noted the conditions in Sochi were "more like summer skiing" and said, "it's actually colder here in this studio right now than it was there." Letterman said, "We're hoping to get the Olympics in 2018" (“Late Show,” CBS, 2/25).
