Big Air Time with Kevin and Kai

Big Air Time with Kevin and Kai

21/12/2012

A weather forecast of blizzards and temperatures of -25° is just an average day in the office for freestyle skiers Kevin Rolland (FRA) and Kai Mahler (SWI), especially if your goal is the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games!

We caught up this week with YOG Ambassador and freestyle ski world champion, Kevin, and his buddy Kai Mahler, the ski half-pipe gold medallist at Innsbruck 2012, high up on a snowy mountain in Colorado, USA, where the pair are training together.

With Sochi 2014 just over a year away, Kevin has bounced back from injury and is focused hard on ski half-pipe, which will make its Olympic debut at Sochi.  Kai meanwhile has switched to focus on slopestyle.  Both have some seriously impressive moves - enough to make the average person dizzy!
