HOW THE FATE OF HIS BROTHER LET TAYLOR BECOME A MODEL ATHLETE
His brother became ill as a child with cancer, picked up Nordic combination and then fully recovered. For Taylor Fletcher this was the moment he thought: "OK, if my brother has so much fun with it, surely it must be for me." Today both of them are in the US national team. Taylor knows how to make goals tangible: "In the winter I want to continuously jump into the top 20 and then on the podium." The important thing is that he sleeps well before a race. If not, Taylor says, "I need two or three liters of coffee to wake up." What drives him? "The goal to become world champion or Olympic champion." And after that? "I can still become a cook, as I've previously wanted to." For now Taylor is a model athlete among combiners in the best sense.
