Aksel Lund Svindal: “Departure is fear”

THE TIME: Mr. Svindal, as a ski racer you raced down the slopes at speeds of up to 150 kilometers per hour. Do you ridicule people who feel fear?

Aksel Lund Svindal: On the contrary. I will be hosting the awards ceremony in Kitzbühel on Saturday evening, and should I tell you what I was thinking during the preparation?

TIME: That you think it’s a shame not to be at the top of the podium anymore?

Swindle: No, I thought what a pleasant feeling it is to just watch. As drivers we laughed, it’s always nice to be there, but also great to come home again. I always felt afraid because the route is brutal.
