What drove you to become a competitive ski racer:
The fun of skiing itself and the possibility of being the best and fastest in the world!
Define yourself in three words:
Ambitious, positive, happy
I love... doing and watching sports, cakes,
I hate..  spiders, disrespect
I need..  my family and friends
I believe.. that every action has its reason
I find inspiration.... in good conversation
My greatest achievement is.....  the gold medal at the Olympics
My most treasured possession is.... strength of purpose
A Memorable experience....  in my sport career where:
1. Wold Champs in Val d´Isére after the GS ( I was 3rd after the first run and messed my 2nd run up -> ended 9th) that was hard, but helped me on!
2. Olympic Games 2010 – I won

If I could live anywhere, it would be....  actually the place, where i´m already living
My interests besides skiing....are meeting my friends, music, doing other sports
3 items I can’t live without..... Handy, Laptop and skis
Money or Fame? Both
Beach or mountains?  Beach at the times, when we have no skiing and mountain then the rest of the year
Favorite song...  I have so many favourite songs, that I can´t really mention just one

Favorite movies...  A nights tale, Sahara, Private Practice
Pet.... I don´t have one….
