After woofy US Olympian Chris Mazdzer won a silver medal this weekend making him the first American luger to win a medal in any winter games, it seems like a good time to make the 29-year-old our Monday Mancrush.
I’m still processing what happened last night. It honestly doesn’t even feel real yet! All I know is that I have an amazing group of people in my life that stick with me even when times are tough and sharing this high with them is one of the best ways I can say thank you back. It honestly has taken a village… actually make that a few villages to put me into the position where when I was on the handles for that fourth run everything just felt right. I wasn’t nervous, I was just ready and I think you can see a little smile through my game face because for some reason I knew I could do it even before I began that run. It’s been a hell of a ride and all I can do is say thank you to all the people who supported me and helped me develop as a person along the way. To my amazing teammates who always push me to be my very best. To my coaches who always believed in me and would stop at nothing to get me on that podium. To my incredible family who has been my emotional rock and has the unfortunate task of always having to deal with me. To my friends around the world who support my crazy ways! All I can say is thank you and we finally did it!!!! #teamusa #itsforamerica #pyeongchang2018 #silver #feelslikeawin #olympic #medalist #first #american #menssingles #medal #believe #achieve #inspire #icamesecondA post shared by Chris Mazdzer (@mazdzer) on Feb 11, 2018 at 3:58pm PST
Getting an early morning wake up by anti-doping may be annoying to some athletes but not me. With every drug test that I take pre 6am I am showing to the world and my competitors that I don't take short-cuts and when I get to the top of that podium it was through sacrifice, dedication and hard work. We can do anything we want if we set our minds to it, commit and never loose faith in ourselves. Plus, I got a nice and early start to the morning! #playtrue #phoenixgym #slc #antidoping #wada #usada #noshortcuts #buildthebestyou #teamusa @teamusa @usantidoping #thankyouA post shared by Chris Mazdzer (@mazdzer) on Jun 1, 2017 at 9:41am PDT
After a long morning of skiing I don’t want to have wait until spring to get that refreshing wake-up feeing of jumping into a mountain lake. That’s why I partnered with Tame The Beast, their products have caffeine and arousing scents to give me that mountain lake cleanse and wake up without that insanely cold feeling that I am probably experiencing in this picture.

Enjoying a little sun and dry pavement in between the rain clouds up here in Whistler. Working hard with @anthillfilms to get the perfect street luge video wrapped up. #whistler #streetluge #anthill #calvinkleinA post shared by Chris Mazdzer (@mazdzer) on Jul 19, 2016 at 9:59pm PDT
