Olympic Alpine Skier vs Speed Skier

By

Interesting little documentary about speed skier Jan Farrell challenging Andorran Downhill champion and Olympian Marc Oliveras to a race for €5000. Jan compressed 9 seasons of speed skiing experience into 5 days of training, gave Marc the specialized equipment needed for mach speed and pointed him downhill. Gravity took over and the results were tight. Marc finished Marc finished just.89kph behind Jan and was a great sport about it gifting Jan his Kitzbühel bib as a present.
