Overcoming fear

Postby Evren » Thu Mar 29, 2012 3:13 pm

This video of a 10 year old Park City girl making her "first" (more like first from 40m) ski jump has been making the rounds. I guess we've all been there in one way or another on the slopes but she is pitch-perfect in vocalizing the emotions... even if she does sound a bit like a little boy.

Sweet! Inspiring in its own little way. I'll have to show that to my daughter.
