Entraîneur Helmut Spiegl [personal], AUT, from 2012 (, 21 Dec 2017; Athlete, 09 Feb 2018)
Blessures In February 2016 he had a bad crash and tore the anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate, and lateral collateral ligaments in his knee, as well as tearing the meniscus, dislocating his knee and suffering a tibia fracture. It took 10 months of rehabilitation before he returned to the snow. (OIS, 07 Feb 2018;, 21 Dec 2017)
Départ He began skiing at age three in Fort McMurray, AB, Canada. (Athlete, 09 Feb 2018)
Raison He was introduced to the sport by his sister, and encouraged to pursue it by his parents. "[My parents] actually forced me to be a skier. I wanted to be a hockey player, but they decided against that, and thought skiing was a good activity for me to do. My parents were too concerned about injuries as a hockey player." (Athlete, 09 Feb 2018; BBC Africa Twitter profile, 31 Jan 2018)
Ambition To compete at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang. (, 21 Dec 2017)

Récompense He was selected as Eritrea's flag bearer for the opening ceremony of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang. (, 03 Jan 2018)
Informations supplémentaires General
He is due to become the first athlete to represent Eritrea at an Olympic Winter Games at the 2018 Games in Pyeongchang. Born in Canada to Eritrean parents, who arrived in Canada as refugees during the 1980s, he decided he would represent Eritrea in international competition in 2011. "I have grown up here with a lot of friends who are Canadian but I also have that connection inside to who I am as an Eritrean. I've been very humbled by the response and support I've received, especially from the Eritrean-Canadian community. They look up to me and I never imagined myself being in that position." (, 21 Dec 2017)

He feared his February 2016 knee injury would be the end of his skiing career, but was inspired by the recovery of US alpine skier Ted Ligety from his own knee injury. "I wasn't sure if I'd be able to ski again, or even walk. Around the time that I injured my knee, Ted Ligety had injured his knee [January 2016]. So I was following his rehabilitation and seeing what he was doing to make his knee heal faster. For me, it was a little inspiration from Ted, his perseverance to get back on the snow." (OIS, 07 Feb 2018)
