DO YOU HAVE A PRE-RUN ROUTINE YOU DO BEFORE CONTESTS FOR GOOD LUCK?
I don’t believe in luck when it comes to my skiing; all of the hard work has been done by then. I simply like to stretch out a bit, laugh with my friends, and just relax.
WHAT HAS BEEN THE BIGGEST ACCOMPLISHMENT OF YOUR CAREER?
The biggest accomplishment of my career so far has been the 2013 Under 21 World Trick Championship, because I only had one week to prepare after not being able to ski for 3 months with a bad ankle injury.
IF YOU COULD GIVE SOMEONE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE; WHAT WOULD IT BE?
If you want to be the best, in anything, make sure that you absolutely love it. It requires a tremendous amount of dedication and hard work to become the best in any field, so it is vital that you are motivated by more than just titles, money, or fame.
