As 21 year old Johannes Klaebo was busy crushing his opponents in sprint freestyle finals in Seefeld this weekend, just a few hundred meters from the stadium Agnete was polishing her freestyle skiing skills too.
And it’s a really big question who’s got more spectators – so good was Agnete with her moves, so determined and ready to win.
Agnete is 5 and, like Johannes, she is also from Trondheim, Norway
There will be no pictures of Agnete in this story because filming & posting pictures of children should be left to their parents should they so decide – or so we firmly believe. Which is sad – because you wouldn’t get to see how good on skis she really was.
“No, we don’t get to see Klaebo taining much – Trondheim is rather big city”, smiles Agnete’s father. “But Agnete loves skiing – since she turned five she practices it nearly every day”
That’s it, really, the end of this short story. But – as we hope – it goes a long way in explaining why Norway is so indomitable and so rich on producing skiing talents. You just have to start at five – and love doing it every day!
