THE VERTICAL SPRINTER DOES IT LIKE SYLVESTER STALLONE: "WORK HARD AND WIN!"
It took Sondres idol Sylvester Stallone years until he sold his Rocky script and became a world star as boxer Rocky Balboa. "Work hard and at the end you will win." - The Norwegian Atomic star Sondre Fossli took that literally and started as a vertical sprinter into the season. First FIS World Cup as a substitute runner in the world's top cross-country team (Norway) - first victory. For this year Sondre sported extra workouts in terms of pace and hardness and refined his skating performance and sprint technique. Goals? "World Champion" he says, "then a career as a real estate investor." Those who know the communicative Norwegian know: That's for sure.
