African skiers in Whistler

Samir Azzimani and Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong are skiers for african countries ( Morocco and Ghana). 

I caught an interview with Azzimani tonight ( he has a program that help kids from disadvantaged areas in France) and he was joking about telling his continental rival that he would beat him and be the african ski champion.

A New Roots commercial… lol

They may not have been very fast, but the determination on those guys faces was awesome, and sooo happy to actually complete the slalom, especially when so many skiiers crashed out it meant finishing above Miller et al… Really great to see!

Random fact, the Ghana skier learnt to ski in the UK, in a snow dome 5 years ago!
