For Chris Klug, skateboarding and snowboarding were a way of life and something he loved since he was young. He quickly discovered that he excelled at the new sport of competitive snowboarding. Chris won eleven National Champion titles, five world cup championships and realized every athlete’s dream when he participated in the 1998 Olympics! You can understand why, then, Chris could hardly believe his ears when the doctors at his routine physical explained that he had a liver disease and would eventually need a transplant. Enjoy an engaging conversation with this three-Olympian as he shares his journey of competing after a liver transplant, winning a bronze medal, and meeting his donor’s family the next day.
