Nathan Ikon Crumpton
A human projectile on ice: Nathan Ikon Crumpton, former NCAA track & field star, now channels his love of the sprint into launching himself headfirst down an icy track at over 80 miles per hour. A member of the US National team, he's pursuing the podium at the 2018 Olympics in South Korea. The 2015-2016 season saw him ranked #2 in the USA in World Cup points, and USA #1 at the World Championships in Innsbruck, Austria, where he finished #8 overall. When he’s not sprinting and sliding at speeds at breakneck speeds, he can be found surfing, snowboarding, skiing, mountain biking, or working in front of the camera as a sports & lifestyle model.
