Byron Wilson and Brother Bradley Wilson Prepare for 2014 Olympics in Sochi

January 15, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Byron Wilson, who snagged a bronze medal in Vancouver in 2010, and his younger brother Bradley Wilson are preparing for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

The Wilsons are part of the U.S. moguls team.

Team USA says that its moguls team is “one of the strongest in the world,” led by Byron Wilson, who won the bronze medal in moguls in 2010, and defending Olympic champion Hannah Kearney.

Though the team is still being finalized, Byron Wilson and his brother are both expected to make it.

“This team is so strong. Any one of us guys or girls could potentially win at the Olympics. We only have three spots and there are eight guys competing for it. It’s tough,” Byron told the Denver Post during trials in December. Every single member of the U.S. team medaled except for one woman in the last Olympics. 

Byron Wilson, a graduate of Westminster College who lives in Butte, Montana, began skiing at age 3. He also enjoys fly fishing, riding mountain bikes, and other outdoor activities. 

The moguls and other related teams should be finalized shortly after events finish on January 19. Thee are 26 spots divided between halfpipe, slopestyle, skicross, moguls and aerials with a maximum quota of four starters in each discipline per gender.
