Washboard Stomach? Skiers Do It Best!

Leaders, Newsfeed, Trivia
Everybody wants better core muscles (and if you don't – you are reading the wrong website, clearly). To get them you could sign up for some ultra-fancy Solidcore Studios (and bump into Michelle O. or Ivanka T. indoor-sweating next to you). Or you could become a skier. We think becoming a skier is better, far far better option. And as a proof present you select examples of what a well toned skier's stomach looks like this season.

Stars Are Getting Closer: Autumn In Company Of Vasaloppet Winner John Kristian Dahl And Team United Bakeries

One of the areas where cross country skiing has a lot of catching up to do is , in our considered opinion, interaction between sport stars and amateur skiers. Soon as any football reaches pro-league, it starts doing open training sessions and players/fans interaction time. Once they cleared the top league threshold – they embark on exhibition tour. Do players and coaches really die to meet their fans instead of having an evening of? They might – but we suspect it has more to do with financial aspects of game. How do you sell those club jerseys and scarfs otherwise? Cross-country teams, by contrast, tend to train far and interact little. Which is a pity as it does little to promote the wonderful sport. To be sure, there are some…

“This Is the House That Jack Built” – Spectacular Real Estate Owned By Johaug, Northug, Weng etc.

Therese Johaug is not having an easy year, but at least her private life seems to be on track. The World and Olympic champion just made a property purchase that has every sign of being a potential family nest. While the house itself is relatively modest affair of five rooms/ 264m², it is located in one of the Norwegian capital's most affluent neighborhoods and offers majestic views over Oslo and the fjord ( look at the photo above from the real estate company Privatmegleren website) Rather more importantly for the Olympic and 7 times World champion, it is literally a five minute drive to/fro the Holmenkollen Ski Stadium, arguably the world's most important ski training & competition facility. The ideal house did not come cheap - DN.no reports that closing…

Newsfeed, Training & Outfitting
When a kid from Falun or Lillehammer dreams about becoming a skier – that's commendable – and also quite natural. But what if that kid hails from, say, Yorkshire, United Kingdom where narrow skis are as exotic of a sport as sled dog racing?

Here at the Daily Skier we love the stories of ambition and dedication – so one's life could serve as an example to hundreds, perhaps thousands of the others. Where there's a will - there's a way!
