The multi-talented Dylan Ferguson is spearheading the next wave of American aerialists, using hiking to strengthen his legs and improve his technique. The goal is to move beyond a Junior World Championships silver medal and achieve success on the World Cup...and beyond.

Ferguson qualified for an Olympic berth in 2010, but unfortunately, a lot of bad luck and a little appendicitis kept Ferguson from competing in Vancouver. Just weeks later he was healed enough to capture the silver medal at the 2010 U.S. National Championships. He again proved to be a “big show” performer in 2011, winning his career-first national title.
