HOW I GOT INTO SKIING

HOW I GOT INTO SKIING

"I love the mountains, I love the intensity of Slalom and that you need to use a lot of tactics. It is not the fastest Alpine discipline, but it is the discipline with the highest speed of movement so training for this off the snow is also a challenge."
