in the gondola on my way to watch the Slalom. There’s not much left of the Paralympics so

interview with some of the people that work on our courses and work hard for us Paralympians
every day. Alright guys so here I am with Andre he is one of the course workers. Andre
tell us what you do on the course every day. Actually I am working on the train course with
my chief. We are preparing courses for the athletes so they can train there so I have
been here since 7th of January so it is almost three months already here so we are starting
all the B nets all the safety A nets etcetera we are preparing the gates for the athletes and
when we are free we are going to the main course to maintain the race there pretty much
that’s it. Awesome Andre where are you from? Moscow, Russia. So here we are on the Gondola with
another course worker Varvara Chicanova she is a side slipper. So tell us what exactly
do you do out here and how many hours do you work on the course. Hi guys, we worked everyday

we are cleaning the courses taking nets and rolls up for the course to be safe race so
we are working hard. My English is not good but. Okay so where are you from Varvara? I
am from Siberia, Russia. Awesome and you can also see the finished course behind us over
