Show Notes Chapter Markers

For this fourth episode, I got the chance to sit down with Victor Wiacek, originally from Poland but living in the USA since his childhood.

This episode is a little bit different, since he is the first guest not racing on the world cup tour, but that doesn't mean we didn't talk about racing. As a fact, he is an athlete as well, but his life changed drastically two years ago when a ski laceration almost took his life while doing what he likes most, skiing.

So he dedicated his time into making ski racing safer and try to put awareness into the dangers of ski laceration. So as I got a cut myself last season, we can both relate to a different level to the danger of it and talked about our feelings and what has to be done to make racing safer!
