How Samsung Paralympic Blogger Athletes Portray a Winning Mindset


The day before yesterday I was competing
in the downhill event and had a crushing disappointment of a result. Losing a
podium and finishing – at least for me – a very disappointing 8th place. It was it
was crushing. It was it was probably one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had
in my competitive racing career. I lived with that moment for a second
I thought about it and reflected on it. It was just like, it’s one race, there’s another
race tomorrow and if I let this one failure determine how I’m gonna compete
going forward, then it there’s no point being here. So I accepted it. I moved past
it and the following day in the super-G I laid down one of the best results in
my life. I won the super-G by over a second ahead of second place. We finished our second participation. Today we had the sprint competition. Cris took … 10th… 15th place. Did you like the race Cris? It was very good, but we have to correct a few basic errors. And next time, we are going to be monsters. I just finished my first event, which was the downhill in Paralympic ski. I finished in 6th place which I’m really happy about. I had a plaster in my race so it feels pretty good. It’s more about my run and my
performance then about the medals Incredible I can’t put it into words
like the amount of love that I felt whenever I crossed the line and I heard the cheering and the relief that I felt, because I worked so hard for so long. And it was, you know paid off. Well, I fell a bit sad because I’ve made mistakes, especially win the first jump which was important to qualify to have a good oponent in the K.O. Still I competed with a World Champion. Anyway, I`m happy because I’ve given everything. So much, my legs are still burning. It was a very
surprising day for me as an athlete. I was quite shocked when I did not make
the qualifying heats. But that said, I am so incredibly proud for all of the
athletes for coming here, putting in the work and the effort to grow our sport and
to challenge ourselves to be better riders and better athletes and
qualifying to participate in the Games. I just want to say that no matter how dark
gets there’s always a little bit of sun on the horizon
