Alpine Skier – How can a guy who's so competitive in his career be so chilled out in everyday life? The answer is that it's just in his nature.
“My mother said I might as well have come into the world with skis on,” laughed World Champion skier Felix Neureuther. This likely didn’t come as a surprise to Felix’s mom: both she and Felix’s father were highly successful skiers themselves. But Felix’s ambition, more than his pedigree, is the source of his success. “For an athlete, the Olympics are everything. You’ll do anything to win a medal – and I’m no exception to that.”
While Felix may have been “born in a ski suit,” that’s certainly not what he wears every day. For someone with so much ambition in his career, he’s exceptionally chilled out off the clock. “I’m a pretty relaxed guy, and that’s how I dress. Nothing extravagant, but it should all go together.”
