My career in ski racing began at Coronet Peak in 2001 with a school holiday program learning to ski, then weekends, to where I am now a full time athlete. I have also spent time training at Cardrona and Treble Cone. For many years summers have been spent in the northern hemisphere continuing the training and racing. This has been in Europe, Canada and the USA. For the northern hemisphere winter season, training usually starts in Colorado until Christmas then to Europe through to early April. I participated in the Olympics in Sochi, Russia February 2014 and Pyeongchang, South Korea in February 2018. World Ski Championships at Schladming, Austria in 2013 as well as Beaver Creek, Colorado in 2015, St Moritz, Switzerland 2017, and Are, Sweden 2019.
I am proud to represent New Zealand at the highest level of alpine skiing and I have been a member of the New Zealand National Ski Team since 2009.Contact – email: email@example.com

Hey Heather, thanks for your message. When not skiing I would enjoy just relaxing with some friends or maybe doing some mountain biking. Hope the project goes well. Cheers Adam
Hey Adam! Haha I’m doing a school project on you too! Do you have any interesting facts about yourself? 🙂
I had my appendix out when I was 12 :)….. I don’t like tomato or anchovies, I love chocolate and anzac biscuits. I love the beach but unfortunately I don’t get much of a chance to get to one as I tend to have an ongoing winter.
Hope this helps haha

Sorry about the late reply – it’s been a bit hectic finishing the Olympics and getting back to Austria for more training and races. Thanks for your comments, I was pretty happy with my results for my first Olympics – hope your project is going well
Hi Adam I’m doing a project on you I was wondering what u eat to prepare for the Olympics
Sorry about the late reply – it’s been a bit hectic finishing the Olympics and getting back to Austria for more training and races.
To prepare for the Olympics is the same preparation for all racing and training with regards to food. It is important to get enough volume into my body each day because of the amount of energy I burn, especially during races. On race days, we try and have a high carbohydrate meal with some kind of protein the night before such as a pasta dish with meat and salad or veges and then for breakfast, food that creates energy for longer is good. Things like porridge, muesli, yoghurt, eggs on toast (and a combination of all of these) is a good start. It is important to replenish the energy during the day so snacks on things like peanut butter sandwiches, nuts, bananas…. are good. It is also really important to stay hydrated as we loose a lot of moisture during the day . Hope this helps. Good luck with the project
My name is Martin, and I am a 13-year-old student living in Auckland, and my school project was to do a sports profile on a member of the 2018 Winter Olympics. Today, I have two questions for you. The first is, At what point in your life did you commit yourself to your sport?. And the second is, What sacrifices have you made throughout your life to get where you are today?. I hope you reply.
From a huge fan of yours,
Hi Martin, sorry for slow response! Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you asap. Cheers
