Jon Olsson’s New Gig(Video)

jon olssonThe 8-times X-games medal winner and perpetual mind-blowing freeskier Jon Olsson has decided to push the limits with his newest of ventures… sideline reporting for the Jon-Olsson video blog.

Jon fans need not worry, this short career detour is only a temporary result of his recent surgery on his right knee. The surgery to repair his meniscus was a minor one and everything has gone as planned. Jon is eagerly targeting a mid-October return, hoping to take part at the Icer Air in San Francisco. “I have been a bit worried since I haven’t felt that the knee has worked 100% during my training in New Zealand. The decision was in my hands so I thought it is better to do the correction now and don’t risk anything in the future. It was just a small operation so I should be back on skis in a month. I’m really positive about it, this is my first injury in my career, so it was about time and luckily it’s just a minor thing,”

As for Olsson’s venture into the world of sideline reporting… Jon didn’t do too bad. His work at the recent Freestyle.ch games in Zurich produced a couple of cool vids. to check-out. Needless to say, Jon’s ready to give this new gig up and head back onto the mountain and into the air, which is right where he belongs.
