I started snowboarding at the age of four, and I first competed in an alpine snowboarding event when I was six. Since then, I have devoted a lot of time trying to figure out how to become a faster racer. My goal has been ”to get better every day.”
In alpine snowboarding, a rider glides down the slopes at a speed of more than 50 km per hour. This sport is all about speed, where you need to complete the course as fast as possible, while keeping yourself balanced so as not to fall. That is why there is always the chance of sustaining a severe injury. In my career, I have experienced many falls and collisions with my opponent, and there are multiple scars on my limbs. Yet, I love alpine snowboarding very much because it is a sport of speed that takes place in nature. I love the unique sensation I have as I cut through the wind when I slide down a snowy mountain, or when I make a turn using centrifugal force.
When I was a 3rd grader in elementary school, I set these two goals: 1)Become the world No.1 racer in alpine snowboarding, and 2)Win a gold medal in the Winter Olympics. To achieve these goals, creating detailed plans are more and more necessary in the future. Such plans should include, for example, training programs for achieving a strong physical condition and mental state, and daily management programs for diet and other activities.
And, above all these things, what I need the most is your warm support and cooperation.
I would like to become a snowboard racer who can inspire my supporters when they see me competing. In addition, I am hoping that, as an athlete, I can be of some help to society.
I will continue to compete in alpine snowboard racing with all my might. I'd appreciate your continuous support!
