Name: Guglielmo Bosca
Years in the sport: A lot
How did you get started in skiing?
I started skiing when I was 5 years old because my family used to go skiing on the weekends. At the beginning, I didn’t like it so much and I had to be pushed to go skiing, now you can’t take me out off the snow 😉
Goals for this year?
South Korea Winter Olympics
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself doing what I’m doing right now, that is what I love the most.
My biggest challenge has been debuting in the WorldCup circuit on the legendary “Streif” of Kitzbuhel.
It was there, on my world cup debut in Kitzbuhel, during the downhill training before the race, my coach said to me: “Go safe down here.” 😉
I would be working in the family company, called TOSTI, a winery located in Canelli (Piedmont) the famous wine region in the North-west part of Italy.
Photography, and VideoMaking
Chill out music
I don’t have a favourite book, generally, I’m reading books for my university career but they are not pleasant books
What does a typical day of training look like?
6.30am wake up, from 8 to 12 up on the snow training on skis, lunch, a little rest, physics training, video analysis from the morning training, dinner, sleep and then I start again
Kissing the necklace that my grandmother gave to me
Best movie and tv series?
Machinegun Preacher, and Prison Break
Favourite food while training?
Pasta and chicken
Results you’re most proud of?
The 6 medals at Italian National Championships (1 gold, 2 silver and 3 bronze)
What inspires you?
Being an example for other younger skiers
What do you enjoy most about skiing?
Going full speed on a downhill course really makes you feel alive and then I love to spend most of the time out in awesome scenery
Advise that you have for someone starting out ski racing?
Train always as hard as you can.
Every part of the training is crucial in ski racing because every single hundredth count and it can divide you from winning a race to being out of the podium.
Anyone you would like to thank?
My mother that support me from when I started skiing and my brother Giulio that has always some good advice.
