Women Fitness President Namita Nayyar talks to Stephanie Venier about her incredible journey below.
You made your World Cup debut at age 19 in January 2013 and gained your first podium in January 2017 in a super-G at Garmisch, Germany. Several weeks later at the World Championships, you won the silver medal in the downhill. How has the journey been in the world of ski racing?
I have always been very ski enthusiastic and I started skiing since I was 2 years old. I grew up next to a ski resort. After secondary school in 2012 I really wanted to go to the Skigymnasium stams, my parents made it possible for me and so I was able to combine school and sports. It was a dream to participate at my first World Cup Race in 2013. Shortly afterwards in February 2013, I became the Quebec Junior World Champion in SuperG. It was or is a long, stony way, but it’s absolutely worth it and that’s what I want to do and it’s just fun.
