The PSL Silver medallist of the 2013 FIS Snowboard World championships does this to fight for his chance to become an Olympian after his dreams for 2010 were shattered by an injury.

Until then, he will keep on striking out his own to achieve his goal – a medal at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
