You competed at FIS Freestyle Ski and Snowboarding World Championships 2017 in Sierra Nevada, Spain, where you won a bronze medal in dual moguls. Tell us more about your experience of this achievement in the world of Skiing?
This was my very first World Championships and I really struggled in the singles event of the competition and didn’t even make finals. I had overthought things a lot and never really felt confident enough to ski like myself. So, on duals day, that was the goal- to go out and ski my run as many times as I could. It felt good at the end of the day to have been able to put down so many consistent runs and end up on the podium. It was such a great way to end the season and got me very excited moving forward into the Olympic season.
You won a silver medal at the 2019 World Championships in dual moguls, what has been a catalyst to these exceptional achievements in your professional career?
My family was a big part of that. Deer Valley is such a fun event every year; it’s the best course and crowd that we see on World Cup tour and it’s the one event where my friends and family are at the bottom. Cheering me on. They are such an amazing support crew and such a big part of what I am doing, and I think that them being there and truly believing in me was the biggest thing for me at that event.
What exercises comprise your fitness regime or workout routine you may wish to share?
I start every training day and workout with a core and shoulder exercise. I have found that starting off the day by activating my core and some of my weaknesses are the best way to activate them and make sure my body is working properly for my training and workouts. For my core workout I do a TABATA of 30 seconds on, 10 seconds off 9 times, rotating through various core exercises. For my shoulder exercise, I do ten reps of 6 different motions for 3 rounds.
