How did Gus Kenworthy Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on October 1, 1991, in Essex, England, Gus Kenworthy is the youngest of three children; he has two older brothers named Nick and Hugh. Growing up in the town of Telluride, Colorado, his parents had had him skiing on the hill not long after he had learned to walk.
Inspired by the success of Johnny Moseley, who had won a gold medal in moguls at the 1998 Winter Olympics, he poured many hours into the sport over the next few years. By the time he was in his teens, he had started to compete in moguls. At the age of eighteen, he won a silver medal in the slopestyle event at the Junior World Championships.
From there, he went on to win three consecutive gold medals at the AFP World Championships. In 2013, he also made his X Games debut, where he successfully finished in third place for a spot on a podium in Tignes, France. Not long afterward, Kenworthy was named to the U.S. Olympic Team for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi. At the subsequent event, he won a silver medal in the men’s slopestyle (he had failed to qualify for the halfpipe team); on the podium, he was also joined by his teammates Nick Goepper, and Joss Christensen, who had won the bronze, and gold medals respectively.
Fast forward to February 2018 and the 26-year-old represented the United States for a second time at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. Unlike his previous success, however, he did not manage to finish on the podium; as a matter of fact, he had battled through multiple injuries (hip hematoma, broken thumb) to compete in the final.
Aside from his skiing career (which would have yielded him some income, in the form of prize money), Kenworthy has also appeared on television several times. For instance, he had been a cast member in the MTV reality series, The Challenge: Champs vs Pros. In addition to that, he has also appeared in the TV series, The Real O’Neals, New York is Dead and in the films, The Way I See It, and Sharknado 5: Global Swarming.
