Andrè Myhrer

SWEDEN

He achieved his biggest success at the Vancouver Olympics, winning the bronze medal in Slalom. During 2012-2013 winter season he won the Slalom Race in Levi and gained a second place both in Zagreb FIS WC Slalom and in parallel slalom in Moscow. His charisma shines through not only on the snow (he’s also a freeride enthusiast): he’s a talented musician and his live performances with his inseparable guitar – painted with Nordica Fire Arrow style graphics – are not to be missed. For André music is a hobby that he enjoys and that brings him closer to the younger fans in an original and creative way!

What drove you to become a competitive ski racer:
I’ve always been competitive in everything I’ve done. I love to ski since I was younger so when I came to that point in life I needed to chose sport, skiing was my first choice.

Define yourself in three words:

Determined, kind, awesome

I love... to ski

I hate... I try not to hate that much

I need... a new driver to reach my goal of single hcp in golf

I believe... in myself

I find inspiration... in my goals and my achievements

My greatest achievement is... my bronze medal in Vancouver

My most treasured possession is... my guitars

A Memorable experience... I will never forget when I took my hard earned car out of spin for the first time in the beginning of this summer :)

If I could live anywhere, it would be... in Sweden

My interests other than skiing... play my guitar, music, watersports, golf

3 items I can’t live without... I guess I would be able to live without most of my possessions but my Macbook, Guitar and Car are for sure things that make my life a little easier.

Money or Fame? I’d say they come hand in hand

Beach or mountains? Beach

Favorite song... I can’t choose, too many! I’m listening a lot to Thin Lizzy at the moment. Jailbreak and Fighting are two great albums.

Favorite book... I don’t have one. I’m reading a self-bio about Slash, interesting but maybe not the best I’ve ever red though.

Favorite films... I like Gone in 60 seconds, but it’s more because of the cars.

Pet... no

A good friend is... honest

Nordica because... it’s the best a man can get

My motto is... Go for the cup
