Women Fitness President talks to the World Cup Champion about her dreams, fitness & lots more!
Let’s begin by talking about your motivation behind making a career in skiing? What attracted you to skiing as a sport?
We have skiing in the family – my parents were ski instructors; we have ski service at home. So, there was no doubt my sister and me will ‘stand’ on skis as well, sooner or later. It began as a hobby but has grown into life. I like to challenge myself in ways how I can improve, be brave even when I feel uncomfortable. So, I guess this was the thing that attracted me the most.
