Winter Sports Aren't Brett Young's Thing

February 20, 2018


Brett Young's a former baseball player, but he says that athletic ability didn't extend to "winter sports."

“No, in terms of winter sports I’m terrible," he confesses in a statement from his label. "And that’s kind of one of my goals moving forward in the next couple of years, if we have any free time.

"I’ve snowboarded a little bit, but I’ve never been on skis and it’s something that I’ve always wanted to get good at and be able to enjoy.  And so moving forward in the next couple of years I’m gonna try to get on the slopes and learn how to ski.”

Meanwhile, does he have Olympic fever?

“For the first time in as long as I can remember we’ve just been so busy I haven’t had a chance to keep up with them," he says, regarding the competitions currently happening in Pyeong-Chang, South Korea. "And that’s kind of frustrating because, being the athlete that I am, I’m generally really well versed on what’s going on, and I just haven’t had the opportunity yet this year.”
