Athlete Profile

Ryan Johnson, 27, of Calgary bounced back from a serious knee injury to finished 20th in the World Cup standings in moguls last season. He missed most of the 1999-2000 season after hurting himself early in the year.

Johnson, who won his first-ever World Cup competition in Colorado in 1997, hopes to improve upon a seventh-place finish at the Nagano Olympics in 1998. It was an impressive result considering he was battling the flu.
