Swiss skier Fabian Bösch, a slopestyle world champion and two-time Olympian, is finding creative ways to unwind in Pyeongchang during the Winter Games.
skier Fabian Bösch killing time at the Winter
Olympic athlete Fabian Bösch showed off a unique trick
in Pyeongchang during his spare time at
the Winter Olympics.
On Monday, the Swiss freestyle skier posted a video on
Instagram of him “riding” an escalator with one
hand. The short clip shows Bösch, 20, strolling up to the
side of an escalator and grabbing onto the rail with his right
hand. He then casually holds on until the rail brings
him all the way to the next floor.
“After 20 years I still couldn’t figure out how these things
work! Am I doing it right?” Bösch captioned the post, which
has been viewed over 456,000 times so far.
“Absolutely made my day. Cannot stop watching this video,” one
Instagram user commented on Bösch’s video.
“How is that possible? ” another person wrote on Instagram.
“My shoulder would dislocate if I tried that,” one Instagram user
said. “I envy you.”
“I 100% want to find this guy and this escalator and try to do
this,” American Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn wrote on Twitter. “I think I could
get on the podium!”
It’s clear Bösch, a slopestyle world champion and two-time
Olympian, is finding creative ways to unwind during the Winter
Games. The young skier previously posted a video of him and
Dominik “JP” Fürrer, a trainer for the Swiss Freeski Team, “bobsledding” indoors
using a pallet truck.
And come Sunday, you can expect to see the skier pull off some
gravity-defying tricks when he competes in the men’s slopestyle event .
