Athlete Main Picture

My sport

Speed skiing is a branch of skiing that involves going down a slope with a steep gradient and attempting to reach the highest speed possible. The speed is measured at the bottom of the slope across a timed 100 m stretch. Speed skiing is the fastest non-motorised sport on Earth.

“I started this sport because my older brother Simone was already competing, and, like every younger brother, I always wanted to emulate or beat my older sibling. In addition, I have always loved speed: I have always been fascinated by the idea of going quickly, and perhaps one day managing to be the fastest ever”.
