To Sochi with Love: One Year to Go

07/02/2013

To celebrate one year to go to the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, we caught up with a couple of friends of YOG who have their sights firmly set on Olympic medals next February.

Kevin Rolland, ski half-pipe World Champion and Youth Olympic Games Ambassador, and Kai Mahler, who took gold in ski half-pipe at the Innsbruck 2012 Youth Olympic Games, are hot favourites for podium positions. Kevin will be focusing on ski half-pipe and Kai ski slope-style – disciplines that will be making their Olympic debuts in Sochi.

Freestyle skiers are never afraid of a new challenge, so we decided to put Kevin and Kai to the test by setting them a mission impossible. Did they make it? Check out this fantastic video to find out!
