Jeremy Bloom Biography

Birthdate: April 2, 1982
Birthplace: Fort Collins, Colorado

Imagine skiing in the Olympics, playing in the NFL and being a professional model. Sound like a fantasy? Not to Jeremy Bloom, who's versatile skill set makes him one of the most unique athletes in the world today.

Jeremy Bloom - He Did It All

Jeremy Bloom's mother was a ski instructor, so naturally he picked up skiing at an early age. When Jeremy was 15 years old, he earned a spot on the US Freestyle Ski Team. At the same time, at Loveland High School, Jeremy shined for the football and track teams. He also earned a blackbelt in Taekwondo by the time he was 12.

Jeremy Bloom - Ski Career

Ranked as the top men's freestyle skiier in the world at just 19 years old, Jeremy went into the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake City as the favorite. Jeremy however, finished a dissapointing ninth. After winning the 2003 and 2005 World Cup Championships, Jeremy got his second chance at a medal at the 2006 Turin Olympic Games. Unfortunately, Jeremy failed to take home a medal again, placing sixth.

Jeremy Bloom - Football Career

Jeremy Bloom accepted a football scholarship to the University of Colorado. Despite his small frame (5'9", 175 lbs.), Jeremy used his speed to excel as a punt returner and wide receiver. He was regarded as one of the top punt returners in the nation. After his sophomore season, the NCAA ruled him ineligible to play because he had accepted endorsement money for skiing. Although Jeremy fought the ruling, he never played another game for Colorado. Immediately after the 2006 Olympics, Jeremy turned his attention to the NFL. He was selected in the fifth round by the Philadelphia Eagles, but sat out the entire 2006-07 season due to an injury.

    I'm in marching band, and I don't consider it a sport.Yes, I'll admit that marching band can be physically demanding, but it isn't a sport. Marching band is nothing like soccer, lacrosse, rugby, tennis, boxing, etc. Comparing marching band to a sport like rubgy, hockey, cross country, or whatever is just... kind of ridiculous.You can argue that it does require some physical-ness, which it does. But it's just walking in tempo. It does involve some endurance to stand out in the sun and play an instrument for a while, but doing so isn't really that hard.
