Thank You        Hvala        Danke!

I am so grateful for my family, friends, fans, sponsors and patrons who have believed in me and supported me for my

entire career.


An athlete's success is measured not only by the way one can ski under pressure and win; true success is attained through grace, kindness, enthusiasm and the pure joy of skiing fast!


You inspire me – may I continue to inspire you!

Thank you for continuing to believe in me!
