84 Mario Matt – Skiing Olympic Champion

Sunday 22 October 2017

“It means more when you become an Olympic Champion at the end of a career”.

At the 2014 Sochi Olympics, at the age of 34, Mario Matt became the oldest person to win an alpine skiing gold medal in the men’s slalom.

Mario has since retired and talks about running his own apres-ski bar the Krazy Kanguruh in St.Anton and breeding horses.

The two-time World Champion is this week’s guest on the Best in the World with Richard Parr.

The Austrian discusses the difficulties of traveling for a skier.

He also talks about his diet, his family and competing in front of his own fans.
