In the age of digital media, athletes are taking their fans on an extraordinary journey by sharing their experiences, challenges and triumphs via their online platforms.
While the vast majority of athletes are active on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter in particular, some have launched their own YouTube channel. With longer, more intimate and personal episodes, Vlogs have become a captivating way for athletes to give an intimate insight into their lives.
So who are these athletes who allow us to immerse ourselves in their training, their routines, their aspirations and, above all, allow us to experience certain emotions with them?
The US superstar Mikaela Shiffrin
With her "Moving right along" series launched on November 16, 2023, Mikaela Shiffrin has delighted her fans. And she didn't stop with this series, and wanted to continue the saga with an off-season series, “Beyond The Slopes” to continue the story of a well-rounded life of snow and more!
"La roche" by Marc Rochat
Although the trailer has just been released and is arousing a great deal of curiosity, we'll have to wait a little longer before we can see the film, which will be premiered at the Lausanne cinema at the end of September 2023. The film will be made public afterwards.
Here is the launching text :
“His career was not meant to be a walk in the park. Quite the opposite. Yet Marc Rochat forged a willingness to take down any demons in his way to compete amongst the best athletes in the World of Slalom Skiing. Marc gives us a taste of what it means to fight at the highest level in Ski sport and most importantly, to never give up”

The Norwegian skier also has his own YouTube channel where he publishes a number of Vlogs. The latest of these was made a month ago in Italy.
