On Monday, the U.S. Ski Team—spread far and wide—wished Bill Johnson a happy 55th birthday. Steven Nyman and Marco Sullivan put a video online, telling Johnson that he’s the man. Mikaela Shiffrin took a photograph holding a sign that said “Happy Birthday Bill.” On the U.S. Ski Team Facebook, a video was posted of his 1984 gold medal-winning Olympic run.

Steven Nyman and Marco Sullivan wish Bill Johnson a happy 55th birthday.

Pat Graham of the Associated Press wrote a beautiful article about the downhill legend, where he is today and the support he still feels from the ski racing community.
