Women Fitness President, Namita Nayyar, joins the 2018 Olympic Champion for an illuminating chat about her journey so far and how she wishes to touches more heights in the future!
You made your World Cup debut in Sölden in 2010 and achieved your first podium finish in March 2013, coming second in the slalom at Ofterschwang. In 2016, you secured your first two World Cup victories and won the crystal globe title in the combined discipline. How would you describe your journey in the world of ski racing?
I got into ski racing gradually. Every year, I made a bit more progress – sometimes more, sometimes less. My performance levels kept on improving, not least because I was lucky enough to stay healthy.
What gets you excited about this sport and why? When you’re not skiing, what can we find you doing? Another sport? What would you say skiing is all about?
When I’m not skiing, you’ll often find me doing other sports. Ski racers benefit from being all-rounders on the sport front. I like to work on my own body. I really enjoy going swimming, either in the lake or in the sea. I’ve always loved sport, loved skiing, ever since I was a child. Becoming a ski racer has always been a dream of mine. I appreciate being able to spend a lot of time in the countryside, in the mountains. We get to see beautiful sunrises really often during our training sessions.
